In April 2022 Heather joined the Machine Wilderness artist research programme at ARTIS Zoo in Amsterdam, exploring new relationships between people, technologies and the natural world. During her residency she explored the art of observation and interference, focusing on the uninvited creatures who share their habitat with the display animals. Machine Wilderness is commissioned by Zone2Source, FoAM and ARTIS.
