Dorset based artists Karen Wimhurst and Ed Bersey have sculpted a brand new Audio Artwork focusing on the accelerating dangers of climate change in a world scarred by the pandemic.
In their compelling soundtrack with original music, discover the passionate voices from a diverse range of people talking about their changing priorities in a world forever altered because of the pandemic.
“Together we face a climate and ecological emergency. The Covid-19 pandemic has changed our way of life overnight. Having quickly adopted such drastic measures to save lives, we now know what is possible, both from our government and ourselves. Now is the time to create a new future.”
With this statement in mind, Composer, Karen Wimhurst and Ed Bersey (Sylvafield Studios) have created this audio collage of spoken voices from Shaftesbury, North Dorset, underscored with original music and experienced in the form of a drop-in listening session that is available to listen to any time throughout the day.
Situated in the Moors Valley Picnic Area, this drop-in artwork can be experienced any time, 10:00AM-10:00PM and lasts around 5 minutes.
