Sleeping Beauty Syndrome is a work that consists of two parts. It deals with microwave technology.

In the second part there is shown a video in which conspicuous birds, which have been observed and caught in Finland, are examined in the ornithological laboratory of the Cornell University Ithaca (US) under scientific conditions.

It isn’t unusual at all that corvidae (the family to which raven, jaybird or magpie belong to) e.g. begin to copy tone sequences. Especially when the birds are in captivity, this behaviour is conspicuous.
But a context of the sequence of these copied tones could be first related at the period of the examinations shown in this video work. It is extraordinary that the context between the copied tones and the construction of sentences by the use of those haven’t been related before.

At the time of examination the special behaviour of the birds was associated with the over-averaged radiation quantity of phone masts, 200 km to the north of Helsinki.
