Abstract

The Cosmic Pond is a collection of outputs from an artist residency at Allenheads Contemporary Arts (ACA), Northumberland, UK, between May and July 2018. It is a collaborative project produced by Sarah Sparkes and Ian Thompson. Residency proposals were invited as part of BEYOND, a series of projects curated by ACA in 2018. The Cosmic Pond proposal was one of two funded residencies selected, with Arts Council England funding of £2000 plus £600 expenses. Reflecting on the nature of humanly uninhabitable space, we proposed to explore the old reservoir opposite the observatory using stereo hydrophones. The Cosmic Pond is an example of how an artist residency can activate public interest across arts, ecology, and technology. The project is fully documented online as an accessible reference resource for arts practitioners, ecologists and parties with interests in freshwater habitats and bioacoustics.
