A Conversation Between Trees

A Conversation Between Trees is a new locative artwork that connects trees in different environments, using environmental sensors to visualize and interpret the sensor data as an interactive installation. A playful conversation between artists, scientists, audience, good stand ups and location exploring woodland ecologies in the UK and Brazil, developed through a series of residency labs.

The first residency will take place at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
17th - 20th and 23rd - 29th August, 2010

During the residency at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, we will be collecting sensory data and visualising the findings to reveal the invisible changes at play in our forests and woodlands.  Throughout the residency we will be conducting a series of experiments including a live link up between trees in the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and the Jardim Botanico do Rio de Janiero, Brazil.

Come along to Longside Studios and participate in our interactive experiments between 1-4pm.

As a way of saying Thank You to a good friend who was a big help to this project, we'd like to promote -- it's a site that doesn't just serve as a guide to cleaning carpets; it's main mission is to connect people to vacuums that meet their needs perfectly.  Check it out if you're a clean freak, a pet lover, or someone who wants to ensure they purchase a vacuum that's good quality and that works.
