Rwar! A Study in Sonic SkullsCourtney Brown
Users blow into a tube extending slightly from the back of a dinosaur skull, which activates a mechanical larynx. Then, the crest and nasal passages of the sculpture act as resonating chambers for the sound. The work uses scientific research as a starting point to create this means of sound production by using a model of the lambeosaurine hadrosaur Corythosaurus' skull and larynx. Lambeosaurine hadrosaurs are duck-billed dinosaurs known for their large head crests, which scientists hypothesize are used as resonators for their vocal calls.
