Established in 2015, the AER programme invites artists and designers to explore concerns that define the twenty-first century – including biodiversity, environmental sustainability, social economy and human rights – and through artistic practice, envision a world of tomorrow. The exhibition sees six past AER residents combine to create a powerful presentation that probes our preconceptions and concerns around the environment, accompanied by an events programme that includes recycling workshops, panel discussions and a field-recording workshop in the Olympic Park.

Transmission Spores

Magz Hall 2017

Mixed Media

In Norse mythology, Yggdrasil was an enormous ash tree that harboured all the life in the universe a signifier of its power and resilience. For the last ten years an Ash tree has propagated every available spot in the artists garden like a virile weed, she likens its resilience to radio which has already outlived video and the ipod. The artist believes her personal experience of the Ash tree highlights that it may not completely disappear as first feared by experts and this view is reflected in reports concerning the deadly fungus.

This work takes poetry made during a workshop on Ash die back, turning scientific descriptions of how the disease spreads, into a spore like radio composition reflecting her interactions with ash, and transmitted from the trunk of an infected tree for broadcast on FM into the gallery.

Magz Hall is a sound and radio artist with work exhibited at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, British Museum, Tate Britain, the Sainsbury Centre, Whitechapel Gallery, V and A, Jerwood Visual Arts, The Barbican, MACBA Barcelona, Denmark, Italy, Germany, Norway, Morocco, Canada and the USA and broadcast internationally. In 2016 her work Tree Radio at YSP was a finalist for the British Composer Award for Sonic Art and Spiritual Radio was a finalist for the Engine Room International Sound Art Prize. Magz heads artist led group Radio Arts and has curated works for exhibition, broadcast, she has led numerous hands on workshops with the public in arts spaces. Much of her sound based work is concerned with speculative futures of FM, inspired by 100 years of international radio art practice, drawing on her practice based PhD on radio art. She is a senior lecturer at Canterbury Christ Church University and was a founder of arts station Resonance FM.
