I’m very pleased to be invited to join this conversation in which curators, artists and authors explore where nature and the digital world crossover during this time of radical change.

The event will happen live online after which the recording will be available on the British Library platform for 48 hours.

During the 2020 lockdown, the British Library commissioned Faint Signals, an online artwork created by interactive arts studio Invisible Flock from recordings in the Library’s environmental and wildlife sounds archive. This project forms the jumping-off point for a discussion on the intersection of nature and the digital, in a time when the importance of both online connectivity and access to open space has been brought into sharp focus.

Chaired by Irini Papadimitriou, Creative Director at Future Everything, the event features Ben Eaton from Invisible Flock, academic and author of books on nature and technology Sue Thomas, and Cheryl Tipp, Curator of Wildlife and Environmental Sounds at the British Library.

Faint Signals is an ambient and slow experience of discovery, exploring the world one step at a time. With thousands of combinations of sounds, your constantly evolving experience will be unique to you. Faint Signals is an invitation to slow down. An opportunity to experience an imagined Yorkshire forest, densely populated with sounds of nature from the British Library’s archive. Explore Faint Signals

This event is part of the British Library’s springtime season on environment: The Natural Word.
