~ in the fields

~ in the fields (Shetland Islands, 2011)

~ in the fields’ work emphasizes natural phenomena and condenses poetic moments into inventions of autonomous, cocooned systems. Their visual art practice draws on archival material, environmental topics and ephemeral artefacts, such as lost forms of cinema: There is always a sense of anticipation in seeing ~ in the fields’ work because of its integrity, beauty and inventiveness, reflects independent producer Katie Nicoll.

Their installations are responsive, of modular appearance and often powered by solar energy, such as their work ume, which considers the transformation from winter to spring.

~ in the fields is an artistic partnership between artists Nicole Heidtke and Stefan Baumberger, founded in Edinburgh in 2005. Since then, they have received commissions for public artworks from across the UK, and in 2010 they won the Berlin University of the Arts Award for Interdisciplinary Art and Science for their work ink. They were also awarded the alt-w award for their research project floc, which was based on the bird island Bass Rock and gannets’ migration.

Nicole previously taught at the Bauhaus University of Weimar, Germany, founding the pioneering Masters programme in Media Architecture there. Stefan has conducted research at the Institute for Advanced Media Arts and Sciences, Ogaki, Japan. They are Artists-in-Residence at the University College London Environment Institute.
