Erygmascope is an commissioned online collaboration between Tracy Hill, artist, Ralph Hoyte, poet and writer, and Phill Phelps, musician, coder and audio-engineer. Working in partnership with Lancashire Wildlife Trust and City of Trees this on line project is an artistic response during the Covid - 19 lockdown.
The title is taken from the name of a late 19th-century piece of apparatus designed for the examination of the strata of earth. The curiosity of looking beyond the surface and providing a view unseen has grown out of on-going discussions between the artists (Hill, Hoyte, Phelps) over the last two years whilst working on Stratum.
Erygmascope offers a 15sec-long weekly snapshot of Hill, Hoyte and Phelps considered sonic and visual responses to ‘landscape’, and especially to liminal wetland environments.
