Coastal glamours, Margate, Solstice 2019. This is a sample from an ongoing project, This star makes us want to lie down, in which unearthly planetary events are depicted more obliquely by looking down at the ground (beginning with Dartmoor Interlude, a depiction of the Perseids meteor shower 2017 via constellations of dew). This solstice episode is titled with a line from David Spittle's All Particles and Waves (2019), with piano from Natalia Beylis' Green Bird Fountain.
Amy Cutler is an artist, cultural geographer, curator, writer, and film-maker who works with ideas of geography and nonhuman others. In her career in the GeoHumanities she has completed a PhD, a post-doc, and an ECR fellowship, and during this time she has exhibited her work or run live events with organisations including the BBC, Somerset House, Sheffield Doc/Fest, Sheffield Institute of Arts, the Wellcome Trust, the Horniman Museum, International Documentary Festival Amsterdam, Late Junction, Tate Modern, the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, the Horse Hospital, San Francisco Green Film Festival, the Natural History Museum, and Kew Museum of Economic Botany. Her geography training impacts her work as an artist, performer, and curator, and she works frequently on the production of immersive and live cinema and exhibition events provoking and changing the public conversation around ideas of space, geography, and nature-cultures. She was most recently lecturing in animal studies in the Visual Cultures department at Goldsmiths, University of London, but she also teaches more publicly, applying her cross-disciplinary training to developing unusual live sessions and and fieldtrips for museums, festivals, and galleries.
