Super excited to have been awarded the Pioneer Award from Newcastle Institute of Creative Arts Practice which will allow the opportunity to unite School of Arts and Cultures with School of Engineering and the citizen-science marine research group, the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust. The idea is explore the use of cutting-edge marine acoustic technologies developed at Newcastle University within marine protection programmes such as that run by HWDT. The creative output will see the data from both groups intercepted and responded to through the sonic arts. The resulting works, along with marine conservation information, will be displayed on World Oceans Day (8th June 2020) at a Newcastle City Centre based location (TBC).
Over the moon! Awarded the Pioneer Award, allowing me to continue creative research around marine conservation with @HWDT_org. @technicians_mih at @NclUniMusic @NU_Technet #researchactivetechnicians @NCLcreativearts
