    I'm sure that this is a coincidence, and that not all sets of birds on phone lines make nice music. But I'm very interested in converting things that we perceive with one sense into things that we can perceive with another, or that can be represented in different ways.

    This clip reminded me of the artist who translated a passage from the Bible into a code that could be represented by genetic nucleotides, and then spliced the resulting gene into a bacterium.

    Does anyone have any other examples of things like these? What comparisons do you think might be interesting in different representations of the same patterns?
