Creating hidden audio posts, Munnik’s system proposes a new way to share information outside of the Internet, in real acoustic space. Besides an interesting intervention to send love messages with, the installation makes an argument about the ongoing limitations in free Internet use. According to the maker, the Internet becomes a controlled medium in an increasing way. Little Bird is an installation that tries to find new ways of transferring information secretly that is potentially accessible to everyone.
Currently the installation chirps information from WikiLeaks to invigorate this statement. Although I think nobody would be interested in translating pretty boring Wikileaks information on the street, the installation is potentially interesting for secret information exchange, because a bird house that beeps doesn’t look very subversive in the first place. As long as nobody understands the real significance of the installation it can freely publish sensible information.
