The 2023 spring Master symposium at Institute Art Gender Nature, HGK Basel FHNW, featured a special convening of artists, writers, ecologists, thinkers, curators, activists, and other art practitioners, all of whom, in their disparate practices, consider the forest as both fact and metaphor, at once life form and a kind of epistemology. As part of this event, team members Dr. Yvonne Volkart and Dr. Felipe Castelblanco delivered a talk that presented various case studies of Artistic Research investigations that expose how current ecological challenges are felt and evidently expressed by forest across Europe and South America in complex ways which required more refined sensory capabilities to be noticed.
