Climate Just Worldings (2024) Lina Persson
What would it mean to my artistic practice if there was a built-in limitation for me to use more resources than my share? What would a world look like, where future generations could access and confront the present with its overdraw of resources? Through different forms of “worldbuilding” like the film industry’s “storyworlds” and the “worldings” of material feminist theory these questions will be investigated.

JENNY SUNESSON (2024) Jenny Sunesson
Jenny Sunesson (b. 1973) is a Swedish artist predominantly working with sound. Her practice ranges from field recording and live collages to conceptual sound art and video. Sunesson uses her own life as a stage for her dark, tragic and sometimes comical re-contextualised work where real and invented characters and derogated stereotypes, collaborate in the alternate story of hierarchies and normative power structures in society.

Reconfiguring the Landscape in Greenwich (2024) Natasha Barrett
In 2022, the SOUND/IMAGE Research Group at the University of Greenwich hosted one of the Reconfiguring the Landscape international workshops. Unlike previous workshops, we decided to split the work over two periods. The first period was from the 17th to the 24th of July, and the second was from the 25th to the 27th of October. During the first period, members of the artistic team were joined by members of the SOUND/IMAGE Research Group to investigate several historic sites in Greenwich. In the second period, the artistic team performed an outdoor concert in Greenwich Market. The work was carried out in collaboration with researchers Brona Martin, Emma Margetson, and Angela McArthur.

Sound Worlds (2024) Natasha Barrett
As a final conclusion to the research project three of the five outdoor sound installations were remixed for an indoor exhibition space as a multi-part work called “Sound Worlds.” The sound exposition was installed in the Foredragsale at the Old Munch Museum in Oslo - a 21x18 meters space with a high ceiling. The exhibition was open to the public from the 24th to the 26th of October 2023.
