What role does natures play at times like these?
Dawn Chorus is a piece of digital work which looks at what nature means to people during these unparalleled times.
It also looks at how we might seek comfort in the most basic of interactions with nature: a glimpse of a blue sky, or the fleeting song of a passing blackbird.
At a time when our native birds face a very real threat from climate change, intensive farming and pollution, Dawn Chorus celebrates our connection to them, their song, and what it represents to us as humans.
Dawn Chorus uses a variety of digital creation techniques, in a collaboration between local artist Rebecca Smith (Urban Projections) and Paul Slater (Fabric Lenny).
There’ll also be an activity for you to join in with to make something to complement Dawn Chorus.
