Tree Listening Device

25 May - 1 November 2009
in Gairloch Gardens

Alex Metcalf's Tree Listening Installation links science and art to provide a fascinating new way of understanding trees. A sensor and amplifying device designed by the artist provides access to a tree's 'voice', allowing visitors to hear the subtle soundscapes created by a tree's internal workings. In so doing, Metcalf not only invites consideration of trees' visual pleasure, but also opens up larger questions about our ability to take cues from our environment.
