Aleks Kolkowski is an accomplished musician and sound artist. He is the Sound Artist in Residence at the Science Museum of London. His recent installation, known as Babble Machine, takes its name from a fictional device referenced in The H.G. Wells novel, The Sleeper Awakes, and was made in collaboration with radio researcher Alison Hess and poet and historian Katy Price. We’ll walk you through the installation as it eerily blends sounds of the past and present.

NOTE: The Babble Machine exhibit is now closed.
