A team from the University of Tokyo will present the work of

Cyberforest, a unique trans-disciplinary research programme which has

been streaming and archiving live sounds, video and other data from the

University of Tokyo Forests since 1995.

London-based artist collective SoundCamp will curate two panels bringing

together artists, academics and naturalists to place this pioneering

work in the context of related practices in the UK and beyond. This

sharing of ideas and experiences will be the basis for further exchanges

and collaborations.
