Timothy Weaver's HYLAEA ReSpoken is a collection of live cinema (sound/moving image) movements that seeks to reanimate the residues of lost ecological memory. The project enriches the transcoding of bio- and ecoinformatic data to soundscape thru the re-witnessing of endangered and extinct habitats and uncertain biodiversity.
The compendium of works interlaces lifecycles to the afterlife, through sonic and visual immersion, to recollect the complex imagined distance between genomic and ecoacoustic expression. HYLAEA ReSpoken folds and refolds the digital/visual residues from emergent extremophiles into the tenuous fate of terrestrial and ocean ecosystems as they have become ensnared by the hand of human-induced extinction. The intent of the work is a temporal suspension of audience into a sensorial crosslinking of time, space and phylogeny.
Weaver is a new media artist, life scientist and bioenvironmental engineer whose concerted objective is to contribute to the restoration of ecological memory through a process of speculative inquiry along the art | science interface. His recent interactive installation, live cinema, video, and sonic projects have been featured at 100+ venues across North America, South America, Europe and Asia.
