You Cannot Step in the Same River Twice (discussion)
An online discussion bringing together the arts and sciences to explore measures of time, environmental change, policy and politics.
The focus of Laura Harrington’s Visiting Artist project with Radar concerns a past collaboration with Berlin based sound artist and composer, Kaffe Matthews. Now ten years old, 'Where are the wild ones?' is an audio-visual opera, which explored the migration of wild salmon along the River Tyne. As part of this project, Harrington and Matthews worked with children from three schools near the banks of the river Tyne and scientists from the Environment Agency North East to weave together stories, music and scientific data. Returning to this project a decade on affords Harrington a frame through which to consider the significant changes seen within the river, arts and environmental policy.
This live, online conversation hosted by Laura Harrington, will bring Harrington and Matthews together for the first time in ten years, along with Professor Stephen Rice, Jonathan Shelley and Robert Langford, moderated by Radar Producer, Laura Purseglove. Using the context of this decade old project, the group will explore ideas around measures of time, environmental change, policy and politics as well as change and stasis in arts and sciences.
Ecological Thinking is Radar's commissioning project for 2022/23. This is a programme of artist commissions and events exploring what creative and collaborative methodologies can bring to ecological study.
