Nigel will join us at Cultivamos Cultura for a small residency after his residency at Ecopia. He will also be a part of the Faculty of the Summer School 2016 and will guide us through the landscapes of sound!
Nigel Helyer is a contemporary polymath whose work contains several highly developed creative interests. He produces intriguing and continually inquisitive work of international standard and is able to bring new scientific and artistic partners into truly collaborative artistic projects. He is able to do this through his capacity for deeply immersive site-research and his commitment to collaborative and inter-disciplinary enquiry. Drawing on existing archival materials (journals, poetry, artworks, longitudinal studies), and generating new material via audio interviews, environmental data analysis (soil and water sampling) and environmental recordings (water, wind, insects) he has taken what we know to be environmental arts to new heights.
