By comparison, Jacob Kirkegaard’s Transmission was dramatic in its impact. Yet it, too, was a relatively subtle intervention. Walking into the ground level of the Fairchild Physical Sciences Center’s soaring atrium, which extends high above the building’s top floor, one might hear deep, resonant rumblings or quieter tones or, sometimes, nothing at all (fig. 5). On the fourth-floor (and uppermost) balcony, the sound of wind and the occasional birdcall greeted the visitor, yet outside the large expanses of glass the trees did not move in synchronicity with the sound.
