LEAH BARCLAY Aquatic ecosystems are complex acoustic environments, where species are reliant on sound to communicate and survive. Sound propagates underwater at different speeds, affected by temperature, pressure and salinity. The impacts of climate change are often visible in terrestrial environments, yet dramatic changes in aquatic ecosystems go unnoticed simply due to visibility. Increased [...]


KEITH ARMSTRONG Inter-State embodies ‘re-futuring’ practices by integrating concepts of art, science and futural thinking through two related works: a large-scale backlit print depicting a re-imagined scientific periodic table of elements, and a scientifically-arcane microfiche viewer and headphone soundscape. Viewers can examine the imagery as a whole, or in forensic close up, by instigating [...]
