Living Data: Art and science of understanding

Living Data is a program of Conversations, Presentations and Publications for understanding our changing natural world.

The Living Data logo is Euphausia superba (Antarctic krill), the keystone creature of the Southern Ocean. Euphausia is the Greek word for "true shining light" (Nicol 2018).My hope is that, when recognised, its individual and aggregating behaviours will inspire the distinctive and collective capacities of humans to understand and stop our harmful impacts on the natural climate systems that sustain us.

Living Data builds on Antarctic Animation,the PhD research (UNSW 2010) that resulted in a lexicon of animated primal forms that I still use to combine scientific data and subjective responses. In 2013 my PhD supervisor Simon Pockleycoined the term Living Data to describe what I was doing.
