'Whose Woods These Are' is an arboreal music & research project by Natalia Beylis & Eimear Reidy.
The title of the project 'Whose Woods These Are' is taken from Robert Frost’s 'Stopping by Woods.' The poem entered public domain on midnight Jan 1 and now it is owned by no one/owned by us all collectively. 'The woods are lovely dark and deep.'
'The woods are lovely, dark and deep.'
Who owns the trees? Who owns the woods? Is it the birds who build homes within the branches? Or the worms who create the nutrients among their roots? Or all creatures whose very lives rely on their oxygen?
Imagine a public domain of trees where no one owned them & together we were their guardians. It is our hope that by bringing an audience to the trees, we will encourage people to relish time spent in nature and look after the woodlands.
