This video demonstrates a three to five year project, titled ‘encounter’.
The produced project artwork is realised through sound recordings, written and spoken word,
composed music, saxophone playing and computer sound editing.
The encounter is always in one location and with the same set of individuals, who are Canada
geese. They freely come and go from this place to various locations, some miles away. Neither
the geese or I speak each other’s language so a bond is formed through exchange. The geese
bring me knowledge and friendship, I bring them friendship and goods, in the form of seeds. The
knowledge I gain is through observation of their lifestyle, seeing myself very much as other to
them. There is respect between both species.
The intention of the project is to raise awareness on our relationship to other species. Asking,
especially in our ecological present, why other species are viewed as inferior as opposed to
When the various artworks are transferred to the gallery or internet; they are therefore
re-situated to an encounter between the viewer, or listener and the artwork.
