Sound + Environment 2017
University of Hull

Art | Science | Listening | Collaboration


IVYnode supported the artistic project My Way Home realized by Angeliki Diakrousi and Ivana Pinna, who partecipated in Sound + Environment 2017, organized by the University of  Hull (UK). During the event the 2 artists had the possibility to expose their work and to get involve in the dialog between the participants.

Sound + Environment 2017 is a four day conference bringing together artists and scientists to explore the ways that sound can deepen our understanding of environments. For example, recent developments in the field of ecoacoustics are proving fruitful in assessing ecosystem change. Sound is also increasingly used to monitor built structures and to inform urban design. We can use sound for scientific and artistic exploration, to inform and expand our knowledge of environments and our relationships to the world around us.

What can we learn from each other? Sound can inform a range of innovative interventions and solutions to problems. Through exploring scientific and artistic approaches together, we hope to engage with sound in order to create complementary ways of investigating, understanding, and taking action.

Sound + Environment 2017 aimed to nurture meaningful collaborations which generated new insights. The programme featured paper sessions and panels; workshops; public performances; installations, and interventions.
