CAN Y COED IS A VIRTUAL SOUND SCULPTURE RE-UNITING THE DECLINING ANCIENT RAINFORESTS OF WALES
Hearing impaired environmental sound artist, Cheryl Beer is collating nature's bio-rhythms from four remaining pockets of ancient rainforest, right here, in Wales & transposing these into a digital sound sculpture by re-purposing the bio-medical & electronic technologies that fuel her hearing aids. Join Cheryl as she bridges the gap between soil & the digital world, raising awareness of our fragile 10,000 year old eco-history and why it is important to preserve it.
The core of Cheryl’s work is informed by the narrative of her personal experience, where the decline in nature sound was her first indication of sudden hearing loss. Once fitted with NHS hearing aids, she experienced first-hand how our connection with nature impacts on the wellbeing of humanity. By repurposing the digital technology that restored her hearing, CÂN Y COED personalises the importance of a global strategy for a sustainable eco-future.
