We are honoured to announce that our cli-fi stories Turning to the birds will be part of the workshop ‘Listening to Trees’ an online event at ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe. If you would like to participate in this online event then please use the booking button below.

Workshop Overview

How can we sense and make sense of forests with devices, techniques and our bodies? How might we cultivate an interdisciplinary »arts of noticing« (Anna Tsing) for attending to forests and their role in critical zones?

Engaging with themes in the »Critical Zones« exhibition and catalogue, this workshop explores different ways of listening to forests, drawing on different traditions, techniques, methods, media and approaches – from data sonification to sound walks and storytelling. The aim of the workshop is to compare the different approaches and their respective medialities. By this we want to learn about the potentials and limits of forest experiences under current sensing conditions between immediacy and mediation. This afternoon workshop will invite participants to try and reflect on different techniques, in order to prototype a public resource documenting these approaches. It will start in your living room and take you for a winter walk to your local forest, park, garden or green space. The workshop and discussion will be in English.
