Juan delGado is an interdisciplinary artist who aims to explore the extraordinary variety of ever changing sounds and motion created by the combination of trees and wind. His multimedia installation Ringing Forest aimed to open a dialogue with the audience about nature, sound and motion, exploring the original concept of ‘green noise’. He collaborated with an arborist to research ideas on phenomenology and the representation of movement and auditory perception. delGado visited Westonbirt Arboretum, Gloucestershire and Kingswood, Kent to develop his proposal which explored the forest and our relationship to trees from a phenomenological perspective.
For the exhibition at Jerwood Space, London, delGado produced an audio-sensory film installation that reacts to his personal phenomenological experience of the forest.
delGado graduated with MA in Media Arts from University of Westminster in 2001 and has most recently exhibited in Perceptions of Balance at Shape, London, 2012, and completed his touring exhibition Sailing Out of Grain, 2012, in venues across the UK, produced by filmpro and supported by Arts Council England.
