A new collective focused on bringing the experience of nature back to cities

Go Back Up

A real-time audiovisual installation connecting humans to the global ecosystem. The usage of soundscapes for storytelling gives voices to creatures who would not normally be heard.


In this installation, we stream real time audio from microphones placed in the forests of central Japan, the bustling streets of New York City, and from the Camp itself. We include a series of diverse soundscapes that represent radically different environments with varying levels of biodiversity and human intervention. Streaming live audio was an important aspect of the project for us, because it builds an auditory and virtual link between our installation and the spaces we are trying to feel a connection with.

The live audio is accompanied by a voiceover layer of questions and observations posed to the user, asking them to consider their own relationship with the space they are connected to: Do they ever think about the similarities between humans and raccoons? Do they ever consider how they breathe the same air as snakes? Telenatura Lab challenges our visitors to find their own inter-species connections through sound.

User Experience

From a distance, the user sees a large stone with mysterious cracks emitting a glowing light, pulsing slowly, as if the rock were breathing. The user is drawn to the mystery that lies inside, and as they approach more closely they can hear faint sounds coming from within these cracks. The cracks are placed at various heights, inviting users of different sizes. The user then puts their ear to the crack to better hear the sound escaping from within.

The user hears a composition that is created with a live transmission of real-time data from a distant ecosystem mixed with the recorded sounds of the species that are a part of the same ecosystem. As the user spends more time listening, the richness in the sounds and biodiversity increase. When the user stops touching the crack, the sound returns to the simplicity of the live stream. For the user, it’s a tactile, calm experience to physically touch the stone while listening to the poetry of nature, and being one in the moment.

Telenatura Lab is an international eco-feminist collective with artists coming from India, Poland, and the United States. The members founded the collective in order to combat the negative projections and fatalistic mentality around the future of ecology. Instead, they choose to present positive scenarios and opportunities for users to envision ways to change the course of human relationships with nature. Telenatura Lab uses acoustic ecology, sound design, visual storytelling, interactive installations, and social engagement to tell stories about our future with the planet.
