We went through all our recordings and creations and set up a sound map you can explore from within Eden Project.
First there is nothing. Wait. We see nothing.
So many accompanied us on our journey. We are thankful to have met each and every one of them. For their help and perspectives on the world, for spending time with us, for being the way they are.
And soldering and testing and listening to some hard core noise.
The Eden organism relies on 400 (winter) and 700 (summer) organelles with duties such as facilitating awareness and communication, growth, service, or immune system.
Some impressions of our building the new node…
We went on a field trip with the wonderful Anthony Bryant Stephen Polglase (and about 20 other people) to get an idea on the mining history of Cornwall.
We were asked to help out with a contribution to the Eden Project family arts weekend today. We thought of a guided tour in the form of an exploration, suitable for kids. We got it wrong somehow.
Today we got an introduction by Kevin the engineer on the pumping systems that prevent Eden from flooding. This insight fundamentally changed our view on the Eden Project plus it was a so interesting that we came back to record some of the pumps.

Behind the Core building lie the Spiral Gardens and behind these the Japanese Gardens of Eden.
Don’t take anything we say for a fact. In fact, if you hear us say a thing about anything, my advice would be to think of it most differently.
In the wetlands we recorded a gang of birds…
In the morning… We explored two of the many off-site areas of Eden Project. As advised by the horticulturist Kev, we walked from Vounder Barn towards the Pineapple parking lot.
The United Fruit Company was an American corporation that traded in tropical fruit (primarily bananas), grown on Central and South American plantations, and sold in the United States and Europe.
We visited Amber and Dave of FoAM Kernow in their studio. Apart from being the facilitators of our residency at Eden Project, “FoAM is a network of transdisciplinary labs at the intersection of art, science, nature and everyday life.”

An acoustic recapitulation of our expedition behind and inside the mediterranean zone of Eden Project.
An electromagnetic listening walk.
We had plans to explore the far outskirts of Eden Project and ended up discovering the area just behind the core building.
In six days we will have met Adam. I will make a note in my book: Today we learned about bananas.
We are overwhelmed by the sheer sensory overflow of day one at Eden. It is (expectedly) difficult to even only get a hint of the function and inner workings of an organisms as Eden Project just by glancing over parts of its behaviour.
We drove through a maze of hedges and soil until we reached the brightly lit portal declared as the back entrance of a garden called Eden.
Calm sea and an hour or two between Calais and Dover…
To get an idea of the feeling of being in Eden Project, especially the artificial biomes, we went to the Berlin Botanical Garden and its (very different) glass houses.
Preparations for the Eden Project residency. We went to Jagen 9 at the Dahme shore with various tools. It was a lovely day and we spend time recording, discussing and playing along with birds, planes, and boats.
