Songsmith (Cradle of Humankind)

Songsmith (Cradle of Humankind) repairs ancient, fractured rocks following a method based on the Japanese art and philosophy of Kintsukuroi. By combining this golden repair with technology and sound, songsmith resonate when touched. This allows each rock to sing of the land wherein it has existed for millennium. Their song is generated from the raw electro-magnetic readings captured from beneath each rock’s original resting place in the Cradle of Humankind.
