Judy Dench – My Passion For Trees.


Judy Dench’s BBC programme was truly a fascinating watch last Christmas. Judy has a 6 acre garden filled with small variety of tall trees, which she nurtures fondly. As she delves into this beautiful, mysterious journey to learn more about the qualities these organisms hold. Judy’s knowledge is widened with the help from Wildlife expert David Mills, who shows her and fellow viewers a scientific insight to the environmental benefits trees have to our planet.

I was baffled to find out that fungi in trees was not only a prime reserve of minerals but a communication system to other trees, for example. In a forest full of trees the are bonds of veins between the trees, sharing water and nutrients. Judy’s intervals of Shakespeare sonnets shows a endearing display of love and passion, which was enchanting touch to the magical process. Alex Metcalf who is the designer of the ‘Tree Listening Device’ lets Judy listen through headphones to the water and air moving up the Xylem tubes from this sensitive microphone device.

This programme was a super interesting and it make me feel more empowered and protective of nature’s natural gifts. 🙂

My influences have come form contextual art, artistes, music and sound, film and audio visual works. I'm intrigued by sound discovery and perception of the sounds we hear.
