Aquatic Traffic @ Plymouth Art Weekender 23rd-25th September 2016

Big Screen, Armada Way, Plymouth, PL1 1HH. Throughout the weekend during daylight hours.

Shipping noise is a major contributor to sound pollution at sea. We don’t know much about how it impacts on marine life. Researchers at the University are currently investigating further. Aquatic traffic uses a shoal of scuba divers, two snorkelling sapiens, and a lone free diver to draw attention to this issue, as they swim past the webcam in the Plymouth Sound and try to catch your attention as the live footage is relayed onto the Big Screen. With the kind assistance of The Marine Institute at Plymouth University and the Plymouth Underwater Teaching Observatory (PLUTO)

Geumgang Nature Art Biennale 2016

I am more than a little excited that two recent works will be included in the Geumgang Nature Art Biennale 2016, in Korea. The main theme of this special video exhibition is water. The selected work  will be displayed during the Biennale through beam projector and TV monitor near Gongju city, Jemin stream where Geumgang Nature Arts Biennale is held. The name  Jemin stream means it is the stream that saves the people. The stream flows along the old city centre of Gongju city until it meets Geumgang (river). This is the first international showing of my work in recent times, and I only wish I could travel with my work to Gongju!

However, tomorrow I get to meet the organisers, and only have to go as far as Stroud Valley Arts to do so. Seung-hyun Ko and Wongil Jeon talk about the work of YATOO-the Korean Nature Artists Association with Clive Adams from the Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World. Since 1981 YATOO has developed an increasingly ambitious International programme of exhibitions, residencies and a biennale. I am very honoured to be included this year.
