12 hours in the life of a fox - part 1

On the 31st of July 2014, I attached a recording collar of my own making to a fox. With the help of the Harper Wildlife Rescue we let Ollie go at 6pm not too far from London, following his movements thanks to the GPS in his collar. The recorder automatically dropped off his neck the next morning at 6am, to be retrieved a few hours later by following the last pieces of location data. This first extract, that I am happy to share with everyone today, corresponds to hour 23h to 00h.

This work is being developed as part of the Embedded residency programme in collaboration with Sound and Music, Forestry Commission England and the many technological talents of Simon Cacheux.

Often I wonder if there is anything more beautiful than wind chimes. Yes. These wind bells.

I like the clarification at the end.

And here is a short video summary of the fox safari I organised in Dalston/London last July !

Thank you to urban ecologist Marina Pacheco from the Mammal Society for leading the walk, Juice Vocal Ensemble for the musical accompaniment, Hélène Combal-Weiss for capturing these images and making the blue ears, Joel Whybrew for giving those away in exchange for your questions.

By the way, if anyone is in possession of one of the fox ears I’d be very interested to see what they are now listening to ! Get in touch

This work was made possible by Sound and Music and Forestry Commission England.

Where do foxes come from ? where do they go ? What do they do ?

I have just edited together an audio documentation of my urban fox safari that took place in London last july. Better to be listened to with headphones (thanks Dawn for binaural documentation !)

Where do foxes come from? Where do they go to? What do they do?

a fox safari through the streets of Dalston

On the 3rd of July 2014 - Departure 8:30pm from Gillett Square (Dalston - London - look for the trees)

Foxes are everywhere in London.
The urban fox has held a place on the streets and in urban legend for centuries, yet they seem to remain an eternal surprise to the ears and eyes of many of the city’s inhabitants and visitors.

Urban wildlife scientist Marina Pacheco from the mammal society will lead this 45mn urban fox safari through the streets of Dalston, guiding us through wild parking lots and urban gardens to learn more about the animal.
Juice Vocal Ensemble will accompany the tour providing a musical commentary and attempting to entice foxes towards the group using their voices.

This walk is a free event organised by artist Antoine Bertin as part of a series of artworks developped with
Sound and Music and Forestry Commission England during the Embedded Residency Program.
