Part of Perfect Nature: Amstelpark Test Site

Neal White and Tina O’Connell

During their residency in the AIR at Nieuw en Meer, and at Amstelpark, Neal White and Tina O’Connell have been exploring the nocturnal life of Moths and Bats. Their installation ‘Truth to Nature’, which can be seen in Het Glazen Huis in Amstelpark until the 19th June as part of the exhibition Perfect Nature, is an installation that explores insect populations and moths in relation to light pollution and includes a soundscape of bats found in and around the park. As the central theme of their research extends out across the Netherlands, with its vast greenhouses that stay illuminated through the night, this presentation by Neal White in the Cantina and the AIR studio presents their work, with speculative ideas for cohabitation with nocturnal wildlife in which light is considered in terms of both human and more-than-human needs.
