Song of the Sea

An aquatic-themed new sculpture at the Exploratorium called Bosun's Bass will reimagine a bosun's pipe, a type of whistle used on naval ships. Artist Tim Hawkinson fashioned it out of a shipping container, Muni bus bellows, and a bicycle. It will be activated by the rise and fall of the tides to make an eerie whistle similar to that of a bosun's pipe. [Hoodline]
