Nottingham Light Night 2024 – Standing Ground
February 2 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Standing Ground, part of Nottingham Light Night 2024, is a stunning immersive light and sound experience, exploring our relationship with the natural world.
As we enter a period of accelerated climate uncertainty, the work seeks to find resolution in our connection with nature, and a pathway to hope and optimism.
Created following a residency with the Harley Foundation, artists Urban Projections and CJ Mirra worked with Ecologist Simon Pickles and Zine artist Harry Hempsall in a collaboration with clients from Aebal care and support service, and Young People from Proto-Type Collective on the historic Welbeck Estate, North Nottinghamshire.
Through exploration and play, field recordings were created which have been manipulated to create a soundscape expressing sounds of the forest; while AI has been used to create evolving image sequences following the study of ancient veteran trees and archival photographs.
An online Zine brings together thoughts and experiences captured during the making process. A link to the online Zine will be available soon.
