AND Festival 2015 \\ Grizedale Forest, UK \\ 18 -20 September

The festival created a space where audiences could experience the forest anew through inviting world-class artists to create new art works for the historical site. We turned the forest into a laboratory, which became a temporary haven for filmmakers, artists, creative technologists, philosophers and scientists, who explored the secret infrastructure of the forest and natures processes. The programme provided new perspectives on the forest, through the eyes of the plants, animals and machines that inhabited it, allowing visitors an insight into natures technologies as well as emerging trends in digital practice.
