|Since Earth Day 2019 the news continues bleak: fires, floods, extinction, pandemic! It’s important to keep informed but at times the chatter is completely overwhelming. It’s time to pause. It’s time to reflect on what’s at stake. Multidisciplinary artists Brady Marks and Mark Timmings invite you to tune into the Earth by taking part in the annual Wetland Project Slow Radio Broadcast.
Connect to the 24-hour circadian rhythm of the endangered ṮEḴTEḴSEN marsh located in the traditional and unceded territories of the W̱SÁNEĆ First Nations (Saturna Island, British Columbia). The beautiful and complex environmental soundscape, featuring birds, frogs, airplanes and more, engages with you in real time throughout the day. The immersive quality of the slow radio broadcast promotes heightened awareness of the natural environment, which turns the simple act of listening to the radio into a powerful act of collective protest for climate action.
