The Bosun’s Whistle


Project realised at A.A.R.K (Archipelago Art Residency Korpo)

A boatswain’s call, or “bosun’s whistle”, is a pipe-whistle used on naval ships by a boatswain. Historically the boatswain’s call was used to pass commands to the crew when the voice could not be heard over the sounds of the sea, especially in the situation of a storm.
