A Public Sphere for Poetry, Nature, and Politics
Swedish artist, photographer, and blogger Jonna Jinton says, “Kulning is the word for the ancient Swedish herding call that has its roots in the nordic medieval age. Because of its special high-pitched sound it was used to communicate with animals and creatures through very far distances. Ever since I was a child, I have felt something magical and enchanting about this sound. It really touches me in a way I can’t explain. So the last months I have practiced this vocal technique to learn it myself. So this is a short example of me doing kulning.”
