Default El Pipe-O's as Art?

From the Boston Globe:

Dan Senn's "Many Pairs Sounding" operates, in part, beyond human perception, leaving us to fill in the blanks.

Step into the gallery and you smell the hay that covers the floor of his installation. Sixteen white plastic tubes stand upright in the scattered hay. A sheet of paper, folded in half, sits atop each tube, occasionally flapping or shuddering. Every now and then, a sonorous voice moans; another trills operatically.

I assumed that the piece was interactive, that my motion was setting off the sounds and flaps. I started waving my hands, attempting to trigger a response. I was wrong. It's good to have one's expectations foiled.

Senn has composed subsonic music that plays on CDs installed in the tubes. The paper shudders in response to the music's silent vibrations; the audible music is a garnish. If you stay with the piece long enough, you may recognize a pattern in the drumming paper, but it's more fun when you can't quite make sense of it; you're more alert and open to possibility.

Well, I believe it in that manner, these delicate little comments, for which I hold you in high esteem, kind Nelson!
Not only than distinguished engineer, but than wise man.
And which one I like better if I should elect it, I would say it then, the wise man.

"Who can say why Chögyam Trungpa drank?" from NP.

I respect you the deepest one, than man, and than engineer of course.
