The Planting is a speculative, documentary audio artwork set in 2029. The work employs various sound forms, some familiar and some abstract, to stitch together a range of characters and stories building a sense of time and narrative set 8 years in the future. As well as traditional interviews, sound reel, news reports (both archival and scripted) and field recordings, there will be characters from the more-than- human world that sonically weave these elements together – much like the mycelial network that connects trees and plants across a forest floor.
The Planting is supported by the Bertha Foundation as part of the Bertha Challenge Fellowship.
