Imogen Semmler: Farmers in Flux
Imogen Semmler's project 'Farmers in Flux' will involve spending time with local farmers who are transitioning their properties to regenerative farming methods. Using audio, text and performance elements, she will create a story-telling toolkit for farmers and audiences: a portrait of a transforming agricultural ecosystem. Imogen will explore the interweave of personal, social, economic and organic processes that are at play when embedding ecological principles into one’s farming practices. She will also collect audio commentary from several scientists and educators to provide a range of perspectives on the changes that are occurring both above and below ground. The project will be presented in workshop format in Bingara and as a performance and installation at Cementa Festival 2019.
