Singing Ringing Tree
The Singing Ringing Tree is a wind powered sound sculpture that resembles the shape of a tree, overlooking the Pennine Hills and the town of Burnley in Lancashire, England.
The sound sculpture was designed by architects Mike Tonkin and Anna Liu and built in 2006 as part of a project to erect a series of 21st- century landmarks – also called Panopticons.
The area of the Penine Hills and Pendle Hill was the setting for the famous trials of the Pendle witches in 1612. Of the eleven people who went to trial, ten were found guilty and executed by hanging.
Listening to the haunting sounds of the Singing Ringing Tree one cannot help but wonder: Are the ghosts of the witches trying to speak to us? What are they trying to tell us?
