“Shannon Bells” consists of a series of classic large bicycle bells mounted on branches and trunks of trees. Bells are distributed so that neighboring bells are within audible range. This way, the bells function as a very simple communication- or positioning-system or network.If you ring a bell, you are telling the surroundings you are present. You might get a response from another bell in the system.
“Shannon Bells” is named after Claude Elwood Shannon, who laid the foundation of modern information theory while working at Bell Labs in the 1940s.
