Lucy Stevens is an artist whose environmental soundscapes and visual art investigate the relationship between humanity and nature.
Working with field recordings, digital illustration, photography and drawing, to reveal the fascinating behaviour of wildlife and the diversity of species; through the process of listening, observing, responding and recording.
The work ranges from creating visual compositions in response to birdsong, to producing graphical montages from observing bird behaviour, to creating historical site-specific binaural audio walks based on the relationship between place and people.
Recent projects and commissions include:
The Magic Voice, digital print currently exhibited at the School of Museum Studies, University of Leicester until 10 February 2014.
Drawing birdsong artist residency in Northern Sweden at Ricklundgarden for 3 weeks in May 2013.
