These artworks address communication through voice and language and the interplay between hearing and listening (the vocal, the spoken) and seeing and reading (the visual, the written). Using collaboration and performance with field recording, digital imaging and the spoken/written word I am currently exploring an expanded approach to language within species and across species through a framework of everyday experience and the maladaptive, mixed and complex conditions that occur in our cities today.

    Fielding launch Thurs 29 Nov Sunken Courtyard RMIT City Campus Melbourne Australia Map (8mb)
What does the role of sound and audio play in the greening of urban spaces and how does this impact the well-being of people, animals and plants in the urban environment? This project explores how sound and urban greening can work together to help in the design, development and planning of our future cities.
Situated at RMIT University, City Campus in the Sunken Garden (Alumni Courtyard), artists, landscape designers, sound designers, interactive systems designers and scientists have come together to create a biodiverse green space. The site will be filled with a variety of plants indigenous to Melbourne, using experimental plots designed in collaboration with landscape architecture students.
The sound works will be heard from three speakers within the installation structure. Each speaker plays a particular set of works over the course of 100 minutes.
