Dr. Leah Barclay, an Australian interdisciplinary artist, creative producer, composer and researcher, will showcases a series of projects that demonstrate the opportunities for interdisciplinary creativity, the value of environmental listening, and the possibilities of emerging mobile technologies in environmental awareness and engagement. From the sounds and stories of a remote community in Vanuatu, to interactive rainforest sound maps and augmented reality experiences connecting continents, these interrelated projects examine the creative possibilities of sound and technology in understanding place and rapidly changing environments across the world.
