This playful, immersive and deeply human audio-walk by artist Sylvia Rimat, explores our connectivity with the woodland around us. Equipped with smartphone and headphones, you can download the App and geo-located walk and will be guided through Leigh Woods. Listening to Rimat’s voice and an evocative soundscape, you will experience the woodland through all the senses. The walk is also a journey through the metaphorical forest in our brain, which is populated by neurons that look like tree structures. Drawing on neuroscience, the intricate fungal networks between trees, symbology and our personal stories related to woods. The work taps into climate emergency, grief and cycles of nature. ’Sylvia Rimat’s gentle and immersive woodland audio-walk is potentially so restorative it should be part of every school’s extramural plans and feature on everyone’s to do list.’ Review Stage Talk Magazine, Simon Bishop Based on an original concept created with Cat Jones.
