The Murder of Crows, the somber yet fascinating sound installation by the team of Canadian artists Janet Cardiff (*1957) and George Bures Miller (*1960) , evokes semiconscious dream visions, ancient myths, and last but not least Goya’s etching The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters, which shows birds swarming around the head of a sleeping man dreaming. Besides this work, the volume presents selected older projects by the two artists as well as an enlightening text by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, artistic director of dOCUMENTA(13). Rounding out this elaborately designed artist’s book are an extensive interview with the artists, detailed information about the recording and playback techniques they employ, a DVD and 3D reproductions, and astonishing ornithological and literary texts referring to the title work that illustrate humankind’s special relationship with crows.
