Past Event

As part of Digital Design Weekend join our panel discussion with artists using technology and data to strengthen our connection to the natural world and our understanding of climate change challenges.

Our speakers will include:
- Hannah Redler Hawes, Director of the Data as Culture, The ODI (Open Data Institute) art programme, Chair
- Rohini Devasher, artist, currently Embedded Artist in Residence at The ODI
- Julie Freeman, artist, currently exhibiting the ALICE digital artwork at Digital Design Weekend

About the artists:
Devasher’s current research brings together her interest in early scientific observational instruments and contemporary observational sciences, specifically astronomy and atmospheric sciences, to study the twin aspects of the Earth’s skies: its celestial constants on one hand and the mutable objects of the atmosphere on the other.

Julie Freeman is the Director of the digital art production studio Translating Nature. Through her practice she translates complex processes and data from natural sources into kinetic sculptures, physical objects, images, sound compositions, animations, VR & AR, questioning the use of data and digital technology in how we translate nature.
