Scientific Discussions about Slowness for A/V Festival
Vicki Bennett is currently curating a 744 hour long radio station called Radio Boredcast, to run for the duration of AV Festival 12. As part of this broadcast I am conducting a series of factual interviews with scientists that deal with 'slow' issues such as: Rust, Evolution, and Sleep in Bats. You will be able to find the interviews here, through A/V festival, or later archived on WFMU.
"AV Festival 12: As Slow As Possible is a Festival in slow motion. For the first time the Festival runs for a whole month from 1-31 March 2012. It's the most adventurous edition to date including over 15 major exhibitions, more than 50 film screenings and music events, weekend walks and an online radio broadcasting for 744 hours. The programme takes place at different speeds, paces and times of day across Newcastle, Gateshead, Middlesbrough and Sunderland, including an accelerated 24 Hour Launch. Programme highlights and our new website will be launched in November, sign up to our email list to keep in touch and follow us on facebook and twitter".
