For Whispers in the Forest I collected underwater and over ground sounds from different parks and forests in the UK and collaged them into a soundtrack called Midnight Goodbyes. Listening to that soundtrack while blindfolded, I freely responded to the sounds by drawing on raw linen. I translated the auditory language into visual marks, creating my own representation of a particular captured moment in Nature.

Whispers in the Forest exhibited in my 'In Between' solo show.
Whispers in the Forest is a site - specific installation. The trees are of varying thicknesses and are positioned to encourage people to move around them like they would in a forest. Through exploring the space, people will encounter other artworks and thus discovery becomes part of the experience.
Each scroll has a small custom-made bronze weight attached to it, a cast of a combination of organic materials that I collected in the forest during my walks.
