Magz Hall has been short listed for Jerwood Open Forest alongside visual artists Rebecca Beinart, Keith Harrison, David Rickard and David Turley to research and develop her Whispering Trees project across England’s Public Forest Estate. This research will culminate in a group exhibition in November at Jerwood Space, London.
Magz is currently developing an interactive trail of radio transmissions through the forest, playfully enabling trees to whisper to each other, and re-engaging with a sense of technological enchantment so intrinsic to the early radio experiments that make up part of her research interests.
The new project develops from Tree Radio which she worked on at a residency at Yorkshire Sculpture Park last year. Read more about the project on her blog https://magzhall.wordpress.com/2016/06/29/jerwood-update/ and on the Jerwood blog
