Reclaimed brass, steel, and vinyl tubing

Commissioned by Austin Art and Public Places 

The Tubascope is a sculpture that works likes a telescope for your ears.

Modeled after obsolete WWII acoustic locators, the Tubascope is made from reclaimed and repurposed brass instruments that have been augmented with tubing and headphones.  When used, the Tubascope helps a person focus their listening on specific, far away sounds that may have been otherwise unnoticed.
