Talking Trees


Sound & Data art

Scot Gresham-Lancaster in conversation with colleague Bert Barten to touch bases on a decade-long project called Talking Trees. Talking Trees is a collaboration between artists, musicians and scientists who aim to connect people and nature together. The idea comes from artist Bert Barten who is aware of our unnatural way of living. When the Polish government announced the senseless destruction of an ancient forest, Bert was inspired to act. He felt he must do something to make the usefulness of trees more obvious to all. Talking Trees lets people begin to intuit our connections to trees and the forests that they are a part of.
