London: Lauren Baker presents An Open Dialogue with Nature
Lauren Baker has a mission to plant 8,888 trees in the Amazon.
‘An Open Dialogue with Nature’ is a this year’s entrance installation, presented at The Other Art Fair London October 2019, continuing Lauren’s ongoing work to connect with Mother Earth, raise awareness and inspire others.
Lauren is an MTArt Agency artist and her projects support reforestation of the Amazon rainforest. Passionate about environmental issues and sustainability, she uses light to express universal energies and aims to raise the vibration of love and connection within the world. Throughout 2019 Lauren has been planting trees for each artwork she sells. With the belief that artists have the power to influence and inspire communities in a positive way, Lauren aims to collaborate and inspire others to get involved in raising awareness and to take positive action by planting trees in the Amazon via One Tree Planted charity.
In July 2019, she released a ‘Letter to Mother Earth’ installation at Tate Exchange. After taking part in ceremonies with shamans in the Amazon Jungle, the artist felt a profound connection and understanding of the wisdom of plants.
The letter was an open apology for the destruction humans have caused, written in light projected sound frequencies. In ‘An Open Dialogue with Nature’, The Letter to Mother Earth will be projected onto a 3.5m high white ethereal tree, as nature listens to our apology. As the light frequency sound waves reach the end of the branches, visitors are met with sounds from the Amazon, inspiring visitors to plant trees and join her mission.
