Studio Weave’s “The Hear Heres” Trumpet Horn Installation Lets People Listen To The Natural World. Will It Be Abused? Likely.

The Hear Heres exhibit from Studio Weave.Anyone who has been to a park with larger-than-life interactive installations knows how much fun they can add to your visit. And “The Hear Heres” display/exhibition, created by British design firm Studio Weave, is no different and encourages visitors to listen to nature. From Inhabitat:

“Three of the exhibition trumpets are directed towards nature, while the fourth relies on human interaction. One horn curves dramatically toward a babbling stream, and another juts out into the calm country sky. One trumpet even wraps itself all the way up a large oak tree, giving visitors the chance to listen in on the rustling branches, chattering squirrels, and singing birds. The most interactive bugle sits on the estate’s great lawn with two giant open ends and a curved arch for the middle for visitors to whisper to one another.”

My kids and I love visiting places that are interactive and more than just open spaces.

But I’m also little embarrassed to admit, from my experience, that kids will always figure out ways to abuse these well intended installations. I hope “The Hear Heres” exhibit doesn’t end up amplifying a sound, from the natural world, we’d just as soon not hear amplified. [Inhabitat]
