At Jerwood Gallery in London, I have been installing a new work a Dreamspace to allow London audiences a taster of a radio trail I hope to construct for Bedgebury Pinetum. Dreamspace at Jerwood gallery is listening space airing a selection anonymous dreams via speakers inside. This will be used in the forest to record visitors dreams, which are to be relayed by 50 radios one of which is in the space and on a very rainy day is perfect for relaying them too. Next to the structure I have put a vinyl of Forest Radio Callsigns alloted by the GPO to the Forests from 1958, these are from an early Foresty Commission Journal which outlines how forest radio was set up at the time and sound like a sound poem when read out.
I will be giving a talk at Jerwood on the 21st of Nov with Keith Harrison and Helen Pheby, Senior Curator, Yorkshire Sculpture Park and I will also be running a radio workshop details to follow.The show is on from 2nd Nov to 11th Dec. and a clip of longer film about the project at the exhibition can be viewed here http://jerwoodopenforest.org/
