The LCAB Artist Residencies support the creation of new artistic work inspired by the Centre’s research.
They are intended to establish a powerful creative dialogue between artists and researchers that will both generate persuasive and innovative art, and inspire further interdisciplinary research and practice to the benefit of artist and researcher alike.
Amy is an artist, cultural geographer, curator, writer, and filmmaker who works with ideas of geography and nonhuman others. Her geography training impacts her work as an artist, performer, and curator, and she works frequently on the production of immersive and live cinema and exhibition events provoking and changing the public conversation around ideas of space, geography, and nature-cultures.
Laura will collaborate with Chantal Berry, using braille as a tactile device for triggering sonic works which bring habitats through time alive to understand the rich ecoacoustic environmental history which we have lost and evoking greater emotional investment in biodiversity gain.
Laura is a transdisciplinary artist working across film, sound, social participation and installation to foreground the environmental and ecological focus of her art practice. Most of her work aims to reveal novel insights that can contest familiar ways of thinking about people, place and sensation.
Julia will collaborate with Theo Tomking to produce an acousmatic story composition - a soundscape mixed with spoken word which evokes specific places and time periods - entitled Growing Stories for Different Climates to tell a story of sustainable food production.
Julia is an electroacoustic composer, improviser and community artist; she has been involved in over 30 collaborations in the last 2 years and works closely with digital art group Genetic Moo. Her work has been presented both in the UK and internationally, including Mexico, Norway, Canada and Spain.
May will collaborate with Molly Brown to produce a BBC radio play grounded in the harsh realities and opposing perspectives of wildlife trade regulations in Africa.
