The is a short excerpt from moving image work ‘Svampar,’ the result of collaboration by artist Anna Glynn and biologist Peter Dalmazzo, created through an artist in residency as part of the Art, Ecology & Science project with the Swedish organisation ARNA.
A meditation on place, flowing in a circular reflection, guides the eye into the more intimate details of this verdant autumnal landscape and the many fungi.
In interdisciplinary collaborations as artist and scientist in residence Glynn and Dalmazzo collect material in the field. Glynn then selects and creates the final moving image/video artwork. Driven by curiosity they capture their responses, creating work which has a light environmental footprint with minimal impact on fragile ecosystems. They research and record and through their encounters, perceptions and experiences, create works including audio and visual field recordings, time-lapse video, animation, painting, drawing and ephemeral installation.
The ARNA-project is developed with support from the Region of Skånes cultural department. The project was developed during 2018/19 in cooperation with Science Village Scandinavia, Max IV, Sjöbo kommun and Eslövs kommun. International partners are Sitka Center for Art and Ecology in Oregon USA and Matsalu Nature Film Festival in Estonia.
