Wetland Wander - FREE EVENT
Presenter:
Redland Performing Arts Centre
Description:

Immerse yourself into the beauty and wonder of our wetlands

Wetlands are one of the most valuable ecosystems on Earth.They store three times more carbon than terrestrial forests, improve water quality, and are home to a diversity of species. Wetland Wander is an art-science collaboration that aims to inspire engagement and conservation of these critical ecosystems.

Led by wetland ecologist Fernanda Adame, sound artist Leah Barclay, walking/media artist James Cunningham, and multimedia artist Suzon Fuks, Wetland Wander incorporates knowledge from current and traditional landowners within Quandamooka(Moreton Bay), and Nywaigi, Gulgnay and Girramay countries (Queensland, Australia).

Explore these valuable ecosystems in this immersive 360-degree dual channel video projection that features 3D soundscapes, as you are taken on a walk through these wetland habitats and flown into species’ niches. As you get up close and personal with the swamp, you can sense the beauty and complexity of this wondrous place, and admire the intrinsic, environmental and timeless values of wetlands.
