Living Data: Animating Change - Exhibition and Forum, Ultimo Science Festival Event
LIVING DATA: ANIMATING CHANGE
Combining stories, hypotheses, data and iconography
Designing a sustainable future requires understanding our impacts on earth systems and the changes to earth systems that impact on us all. This means identifying our selves as integral to the system. However, it is not often acknowledged that our personal and economic well being require us to maintain healthy natural systems. Living Data is a research project that appeals to body (sensory) knowledge to inspire scientific understanding. The research evolves through symbiotic (mutually beneficial) relationships that develop between artists and scientists. Animations and other art works are designed. Stories, hypotheses, data and iconography are combined. Like a scientific model, a Living Data presentation is developed to reflect current knowledge.
Core data from Plant Functional Biology and Climate Change Cluster (C3) and Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) and University of Tasmania Scientists.
