Festival 2020 Day 3: Libraries of the Future and The Unheard

Katie Paterson and Stuart McLean

26 September 2020

We talk to Katie Paterson, the artist behind the Future Library, a public artwork that aims to collect an original work by a popular writer every year from 2014 to 2114. The works will remain unread and unpublished until 2114. One thousand trees were specially planted for the project.

We also talk about The Dark Outside, a project that broadcasts hitherto unheard sounds and music in the middle of a forest. The person behind this marvellous project is Stuart McLean, who also happens to be our sound artist in residence this year. We find out more about this thrilling aural adventure.
