Kathy Hinde Audio-Visual Artist — Inspired by behaviours and phenomena found in nature and the everyday — working with sound, light, image, sculpture, location.


Chirp&Drift is a project working towards the creation of a sound, light and text artwork for public space concerned with how birds adapt to survive in response to environmental change. Chirp&Drift aims to highlight processes where errors and miscommunications occur, as a metaphor for broken ecologies such as interruptions to habitats, narrowing sonic bandwidths for bird-calls to be heard clearly, elongated migration routes, changes in water levels and the implications all these factors have on bird-life.

For Chirp&Drift, Kathy has invited a team of artists, researchers and technologists to take part in research and development over the summer and autumn 2018.  A time to experiment, to discover, to have conversations, to share and develop ideas together.
