Biophilia

Biophilia, interspecies recombinant audio-video installation, or performance 2017-18
In collaboration with Simon Lysander Overstall
and birds, insects, plants and trees in a forest.

video above is a 03:25min excerpt from the installation.

Biophilia is an immersive audio video installation that recreates an experience of being in a coastal old growth forest, using recordings made by the artists in Fillongley Provincial Park on Denman Island, BC. The project runs from a computational generative system modeled on the biophony and daily rhythms of the real-world location. Biophilia is a form of ecological aesthetics, weaving the expression of forest creatures with the creative responses of the artists.

Biophilia, the performance, invites participating musicians to respond to the live sound- and video- scape.
