Slow Art - BBC Radio 4

Lindsey fell in love with the concept of Slow Art at University whilst reading Shakespeare’s Sonnets and that fascination with art and its ability to transcend time continues…

In this special documentary for BBC Radio 4, Lindsey explores what added value the length of time of creation gives to an artistic idea. Does it make time shrink? Or does it distract us from our awareness of our own finite existence?

Featuring a sound and light snail installation; twenty-two ash trees, shaped and sculpted as they grow quietly for 40 years; an extinct volcano filled with subterranean light passages; music that plays for a 1000 years and a 5 hour composition for a string quartet, 'Slow Art' is BBC Radio 4 at its best.
