Abstract:

  • Panel Statement

    Ecolocated – Littoral Lives combines ecological marine data with locative sound in an installation at the Catalyst Arts gallery as well as on a web based interface. Part of M.A.R.I.N. residency at the Irish Sea before and after ISEA2009, Ecolocated is an exploration of littoral zones near Belfast, areas where human impact on the marine ecology is strongest, and where local communities also experience the sea. It is this juncture, an experience of the sea as a historical or romantic imaginary, an every day environment for work and leisure, and a complex ecosystem that the term littoral bridges. Our ‘field’ or rather, sea bed recordings include environmental and meteorological data, interviews with scientists and local communities and sonifications. Part of the project is shaped through local workshops exploring marine ecology in the wider context of climate change. Our work can be followed on a geo tagged blog and pod casts.

    Ecolocated is a collaboration between three artists, Tapio Makela (FI), Nigel Helyer & AndreasSiagian, in collaboration with the Audio Nomad software team, Daniel Woo, and Michael Lake (AU).M.A.R.I.N. is an art and science residency initiated by Tapio Makela and Marko Peljhan (SL/LV/ US).
