Alex Metcalf - Tree Listening

Fermynwoods Friday 26 – Tree Listening

Alex Metcalf’s Tree Listening installation was a sound-based work that was enjoyed by thousands of visitors, as headphones appeared hanging from the silver birch trees at the entrance to Fermyn Woods Country Park, resembling strange, low hanging fruit, in 2009. Alex’s installation has since been recreated in different locations with different trees around the world.

Floating Structures

Fermynwoods Friday 14 – Floating Structures

Corby East Midlands International Pool opened in 2009 following a £19 million rebuild, designed by S&P Architects. To celebrate the new Olympic standard 50m pool, Fermynwoods commissioned artist Alex Julyan to design a series of floating structures to be assembled by local school children and floated on the pool during the opening celebrations.
