Dawn Scarfe works with sound. Listening is the most important aspect of her work.
She uses it to engage with places and people, to discover relations and exchanges that might be inconspicuous or unseen. It is the first step in a creative process that develops in response to site and context.
The Bivvy Broadcasts will include field workshops with young people from Leyton. Small groups will be invited a sleepout at a secret location in Waltham Forest (Pimp Hall).
They will be introduced to the practice of bivvying and make a DIY off grid web broadcast which explores their responses to the sound of the local environment through the night and into the early morning.
The Bivvy Broadcasts is part of The People's Forest season - a series of events exploring our relationship with Epping Forest, interrogating the deep bond we have with forests and woodland, and how this relationship is culturally determined.
