I met Johannes Lehmann at the Rillig Lab in Berlin, he is a researcher and teacher in soil biogeochemistry and soil fertility management at Soil and Crops Department at Cornell University, NY. He specializes in the study of soil organic matter and nutrients in managed and natural ecosystems
Our meeting around my "listening to the soil" project was fertile and gave birth to the scientific project "Sounds of Soil - tracking soil health for targeted pest control," in collaboration with Kyle Wickings, Holger Klinck, Greg McLaskey.There, I developed new pieces from listening to soil samples in situ, created an installation from the national soils project and grew root systems with natural sounds given by thelaboratory of ornithology .
He invited me to work for 4 weeks in his department, I also offer two conferences, a workshop and an exhibition. The residence is based on the projects Listen to the soil and Vertimus.
