presentation at Beyond Words conference 2017

On March 15th I will present ‘after alert catchers: a report on an other (than) worded event’ at the Beyond Words conference 2017 at Plymouth University. The conference is the culmination of an AHRC funded research project that explored relations of arts to health and wellbeing.

My paper discusses the ‘alert catchers’ project by artists Gabby Hoad, Susie David and Megan Calver at Dawlish Warren Nature Reserve in 2016. I make connections between the artists’ practices and questions of networks, of scoring, and of naming. References are made to work by Donna Haraway, Bruno Latour, Jane Bennett and Kathleen Stewart.
