Presentation Title:

  • Making Sense of Data




  • The panel presents an inside-view of pioneering contemporary public art projects from Australia, England, Hong Kong, the United Arab Emirates and the USA that transform our understanding of our lived environments through evocative and sensate uses of data. The focus on sensation is an intentional and explicit strategy used by the panellists to break data out of the confines of the screen and into our grounded, embodied environments. The projects presented also reveal how cogently the creative arts are contributing to global conversations about climate change and sustainability.
