University of Aberdeen Residency -
Poetry, Art, Music and Marine Biology

An exciting arts-science collaboration with marine biologists from the University of Aberdeen’s School of Biological Sciences.  I’m taking inspiration from research into marine mammals and seabirds to develop creative outputs integrating poetry, spoken word, audio and video.

I’m engaging with two main fieldwork projects: the long-term study into breeding fulmars on the uninhabited island of Eynhallow in Orkney, and the passive acoustic monitoring work in and around offshore wind farm sites in the North Sea.

The ecology team is led by professor Paul Thompson and collaborating artists include visual artists Neville Gabie and Joan Gabie, composer Lucie Treacher and filmmaker Sabine Hellmann.
