For our latest Free Exchange On Tour event, Anne Edwards discusses forests with James Bulley and Daniel Jones and in a free event for anyone with an interest in wildlife, plantlife or fine art.
James Bulley is an artist, composer and curator who creates site-specific installation and sound sculpture. Bulley has also written numerous scores for theatre and film and is a current doctoral researcher in Sonic Arts at Goldsmiths, London. Daniel Jones is an artist and software engineer whose work explores new ways in which sound and technology can illuminate our understanding of the world. His sound works use algorithmic processes to create self-generating artworks. Bulley and Jones co-developed Living Symphonies, a musical composition designed to grow like a forest ecosystem. It was played to listeners in four of England's forests including Fineshade Woods in Northamptonshire.
Dr Anne Edwards is a researcher at the John Innes Centre specialising in molecular microbiology and plant genetics. She has contributed to numerous papers on molecular plant-microbe Interactions and spoke on Biodiversity and Oak Trees at Changing Landscapes, Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts. Recently she has been involved in ash dieback research and has volunteered with Norfolk Wildlife Trust. Anne has also helped with the coppice management of Lower Wood, Ashwellthorpe, an ancient woodland and SSSI nature reserve, for almost 25 years.
