Talks Wildlife

Talk at New Networks for Nature

New Networks for nature 2014 programmeBack on Friday 14 November I was invited to talk about my recent collaborative project The Swithland Wood Recordings, an Arts Council England funded project to visualise birdsong and inspire music, at The New Networks for Nature conference at Stamford Arts Centre.

Artist Lyndall Phelps very kindly asked me to share her presentation slot to give the audience a flavour of how contemporary artists can be inspired by the natural world.

New 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.
Amongst other things New Networks for Nature aims to collaborate with like-minded partners and establish events that enable people of all backgrounds to express themselves creatively about nature and place and to establish (eventually) a regular festival that serves as a larger celebration of landscape and nature by all its myriad stakeholders, from artists and allotment holders, to biologists and choreographers, right through to zoologists.
You can find both our artist biographies on the presenters page of the New Networks for Nature website.

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.
