Plant Blindness Workshop: Meet with Matt Miller
Do plants sing?
Plant Blindness by Jason Singh is a unique and immersive sound installation in our unique Camelia House which uses naturally occurring ‘biodata’ from plants to create a musical score. Being a Musician and Artist, Jason has created a sound installation that uses the biodata from plants to raise the awareness of inaudible living organisms. The installation comprises four Camelia recordings, one from each bed and each approx. 30 minutes in length. Each recording will capture different “moods” of the plant throughout the day. As part of this free exhibition, Wollaton Hall is hosting a series of drop-in workshops to delve deeper into the world of plants and discover more about them through movement and sound.
Meet with Matt Miller – Saturday 15th February 1 – 3.30 pm
Come take some time out to listen to the plants, hear what they are saying and think about what you might like to say back. Join poet Matt Miller in the Camelia House for this playful and imaginative writing session.
