Commissions Residencies

Talks about nature and art residencies

In Residence- Lucy talking_edited-1New networks for nature is a broad alliance of creators (including poets, authors, scientists, film makers, visual artists, environmentalists, musicians and composers) whose work draws strongly on the natural environment. It’s a voluntary run organisation that runs an annual series of discussions for like minded people to meet and learn about the latest news and discoveries from academics and artists- this time I went to a talk about alien plant and animal species and our changing attitudes towards non-native species and another about how modern technology can be used to connect people with nature, instead of distancing them from it. Look out for there next meeting at Stamford Arts centre in November 2014.

On Saturday 23 November I gave a talk about my most recent artist residency at ‘In residence’ at Embrace Arts, organised by Synapse Arts. I spoke about Ricklundgarden in Northern Sweden and the beautiful landscape, the remoteness, the outdoor adventures, gathering sound recordings of the environment and drawing in response to birdsong.

The day was a mix of artists talking about their experiences of artist residencies and portfolio sessions for artists with curators and professionals. I met some lovely artists and it was great to talk about our experiences of residencies, commissions and plans for the future.

Lucy Stevens’ artistic practice examines the acoustic ecology of the natural environment, using field recording, digital illustration, performance and printmaking as a tool to visualise sound produced by wildlife, weather and other natural phenomena.
