Living Data is a programme of interactive authoring and visualising that is true to science, clear in language, appealing to senses, evolving and surprising (showing something new).
Living Data are responses of living things (including us) to our changing climate and a practice for understanding through art and science, where art is understood as gestures made in response to the changing world.
The Living Data program was created in 2011 by me, Lisa Roberts,as an independently led and supported experiment in mutually beneficial relationships. Key scientific data come from the University of Technology Sydney and the Australian Antarctic Division. Artists, scientists, and people from other fields freely contribute.
Living Data contributes to a growing global network of programs for understanding our place in the changing world. These programs include Sur Polar(Buenos Aires), Lynchpin(Hobart), The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR)(Hobart), Climarte(Melbourne), Ku-ring-gai Ph art-science project(Sydney), Sydney Institute of Marine Science (SIMS)(Sydney) and ArtCOP21 - Cultural Programme for Paris Climate 2015(London).
