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, drawing and printmaking 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.
