Treeline Biomimicry – DKP Artist Residency
Jaime Jackson from the artist organisation Salt Road is making work as part of the residency for two exhibitions, one at Hereford Archive and Records Centre in Rotherwas on the Women’s suffrage movement and the Women’s Land Army and the other for the River carnival. The River carnival project is part of the Treeline program an international artist art organisation and academic program on Biophilia and Biomimicry. Love of nature, and learning from nature to solve human problems.
Jaime will be engaging with visitors to DKP to co-create a moving image installation to project into the river.
81% of the UK’s population currently live in urban areas, estranged from nature, an essential element for good health. Biophilic design aims to reconnect humankind with nature, sustaining a physical relationship in order to improve overall environmental conditions, as well as improving well-being, mental and physical health and improving productivity in offices, schools, hospitals and in the home.
The Treeline program brings together artists with communities and academics, art organisations and universities from England, Wales, Norway and Spain; as part of the Biophilic City and European Green Capital programs. We are living in one world, what we do now today effects the whole planet now and for future generations. More information at www.saltroad.org.uk’
