Found Sound (Lost At Sea) 11.1.11
11 January 2013

Found Sound (Lost at Sea) 11.1.11 is the title of a sound installation by the artist Danny McCarthy and has been contracted by the Crawford Art Gallery to sound on January 11 each year for the next five years. 

This year the work be presented on Friday 11 January between 10 am to 6pm during which time it will sound intermittently. It is the only permanent sound installation in a public gallery in Ireland. 

The work was created as a result of the artist’s interest in acoustic ecology and commemorates the loss of the sound of the foghorn from Irish Lighthouses and the Irish coast on 11 January 2011 on which date they ceased to sound. 

The work was originally presented as part of Strange Attractor exhibition/residency in the Crawford Art Gallery in 2011.
