Tympanic Observatory is a sculptural illustration of how the human ear works.  It is comprised of easily accessible materials.  The construction paper cone collects the sound which vibrates the drinking straw and causes the ping pong-ball to bob up and down in the bowl of water.  A clamp light casts light though this bowl of water (as seen above) to cast a silhouette of the ripples on the ceiling. This was installed in the project room at Gallery Diet for the Here and Forever show in 2008.
