To mark Earth Day 2016, sound artist Brady Marks and recording engineer Eric Lamontagne travelled to Saturna Island to help artist Mark Timmings capture the sounds of the wetland. Equipment to make a five-channel, surround-sound recording was set up on a fallen tree at the centre of the marsh.

The recording forms the basis for a soundscape visualization project. View the Wetland installation.
