A gallery display will see unique pieces of experimental art based on nature.

Mike Collier’s piece called A Dawn Chorus was initially inspired by listening to birdsong in a Northumberland woodland garden, what was described as a choir of 16 birds heard early one morning in mid-May.

Together, their songs, represented variously as digitally manipulated sonograms and musical transcriptions, form the basis of this show of prints.

Mike is a lecturer, writer, curator, artist, and current professor of visual art at the University of Sunderland.

His artwork has been on display since July 15 and will continue to be displayed all the way through till next month on August 19 at RSPB Geltsdale’s visitor centre gallery.

Mike said: “The work loosely describes how individual bird species interact through song in the dawn chorus, exploring ways of visually and musically re-invoking these patterns of cultural interaction in a more-than-human world.

“The pictures examine ways of showing how we might better understand our complex relationship to a more-than-human world, enabling us to value the whole world as a living ecology of cultural differences.”

The artwork was created in collaboration with Geoff Sample, Alex Charrington, Rachael Clewlow, Bennett Hogg and Tom Jordon.
