A team from the University of Tokyo will present the work of Cyberforest, a unique trans-disciplinary research programme which has been streaming and archiving live sounds, video and other data from the University of Tokyo Forests since 1995.

London-based artist collective SoundCamp will curate two panels bringing together artists, academics and naturalists to place this pioneering work in the context of related practices in the UK and beyond. This sharing of ideas and experiences will be the basis for further exchanges and collaborations.
