Artist Dave Young (The Shouting Mute) is joined by designer Sophie Fretwell and sound designer Jonathan Leitch to create an immersive poetic installation.
If the Earth could speak, what would it say? Interviewing and collecting thoughts from local farmers, scientists and activists about their relationship with the landscape in Dorset, capturing their views on climate change in this poetic exploration.
Experience this installation created from natural and upcycled materials. You’ll hear a soundscape of poems and verbatim recordings from interviews as we explore our relationship with the Earth.
Some of the innovative costume designs created by the Arts University Bournemouth’s project ‘Costumes for Change’ will be showcased here to address the issues of climate change and the environment.
