Do plants sing?

Plant Blindness by Jason Singh is a unique and immersive sound installation in the Camellia House at Wollaton Hall which uses naturally occurring ‘biodata’ from plants to create a musical score.

As part of this free exhibition and in collaboration with the Nottingham Festival Of Science and Curiosity, Wollaton Hall is hosting a series of drop-in workshops to delve deeper into the world of plants and discover more about them through movement and sound.

Meet with Matt Miller - Saturday 15th February 1 - 3.30pm

Come take some time out to listen to the plants, hear what they are saying and think about what you might like to say back. Join poet Matt Miller in the Camellia House for this playful and imaginative writing session.

Drawing Sound with Gina Mollett - Sunday 16th February 1 - 3.30pm

The workshop will explore experimental and creative ways to 'capture' sound through line, colour, shape and texture. What does sound look like? How does it feel? Join Gina Mollett in the Camellia House for this fun and imaginative way to understand plants.

Conducting Nature with Callum Mulligan - Sunday 16th February 1 - 3.30pm

Explore plants, circuits and music. Try out plants that play music when you touch them and make your own. Enjoy the surroundings of Wollaton Hall's Great Hall for this fun family friendly drop in. 

Part of the Nottingham Festival of Science and Curiosity, an event celebrating Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths with interactive fun and free events across Nottingham. Click here for more events.
