you are variations: Ecologies of Translation

you are variations is a public lecture addressing a vital, urgent and intricate matter of concern: Can we learn to listen to a tree? And if so, how?

Christina Della Giustina presents research studying the water cycle of trees. It processes environmental data on sap flow from scientific research on climate change, transposing it into a musical score and enacting it collaboratively.  This draws attention to the complex water-cycling and sophisticated energy balance of trees under changing environmental conditions - relevant for contemporary scientific research on climate futures, and raising questions regarding the contemporary locus of art’s transformative power. The project proposes that we face these challenges together.
