Nature has awakened in many scientists and artists a sense of exploration, admiration and beauty in the past. Even today, many artists find most of their inspiration in nature and then translate it into artistic language through many expressions. This is the source of our workshop, where with the help of the silent disco system we get to know the world of contemporary artists and the method of artistic research and observation of the environment. Through the space, the participants move with the help of a sound recording (and also a mentor) – along the outlined path, through the urban and natural environment in their city. Active perception of the environment is provided (houses, objects, animals, nature, people), as well as responses to them, all individually and in groups. As individuals, but connected in a group with physical distance, we can get to know the already known environment anew, try to respond to it and co-create it for a few moments.
The aim of the workshop is to explore and get to know the surroundings in an active, fun and aware way through learning about artistic research and pieces of selected sound works of art. Establishing communities, sensitizing to space and each other.
