Studio Weave’s Trumpet Installation Amplifies the Sounds of Nature

Innovative British design firm Studio Weave has wowed us again with an amazing outdoor installation called "The Hear Heres." While the title may be confusing, the aim of the project certainly is not. The firm has erected a handful of large trumpet horns throughout a country estate in England that point toward different parts of nature. Visitors can truly get in touch with their surroundings by lending an ear to the fun structures and capturing the sounds of the great outdoors.
Three of the exhibition trumpets are directed towards nature, while the fourth relies on human interaction. One horn curves dramatically toward a babbling stream, and another juts out into the calm country sky. One trumpet even wraps itself all the way up a large oak tree, giving visitors the chance to listen in on the rustling branches, chattering squirrels, and singing birds. The most interactive bugle sits on the estate’s great lawn with two giant open ends and a curved arch for the middle for visitors to whisper to one another.
The horns are each supported by metal struts with special plates on the bottom that prevent damage to the landscape when the installation is removed.
