Hark 2 (2007) originated as a collaborative installation, combining soundscapes and animated macro-photographic images. David Cottridge’s photographs explore the texture, colour and form of tree bark, lichens and mosses through a series of large-scale macroscopic photographs. The layered images of shifting light and shadow, adding an additional suggestion of temporality within a seamless animation of still photographic images. David Chapman has collected a series of bio-acoustic and environmental recordings and the resulting composition responds to the textures, shapes and patterns within the images, triggering sounds which have some form of associational connection or creating sometimes paradoxical relationships between what we see and what we hear.
All the images and sounds were sourced from sites in the Lee Valley, on the edge of London.
