Event description

Description

Hear artists and scientists talk about how they have used climate and environmental data sets to explore issues around the communication of science.

Climate data contains vital messages about changes in our natural environment and there is a growing interest in how this science can be communicated more widely. Our event showcases work by artists, composers and scientists who share a desire to enable a different kind of access to knowledge, an access that is direct and unmediated and that acts as a gateway to understanding.

Participants include:

- artists Tom Corby and Gavin Baily who will be explaining their data driven video installations of change at the poles

- artist and engineer Diana Scarborough who will share insights into the process of collaboration between scientists and artists

- composer Laurence Osborn and sculptor Peter Shenai who will show excerpts from their climate change inspired collaboration, Change Ringing

- Polar scientists from the Scott Polar Research Institute and the British Antarctic Survey who will tell the stories and share the intrinsic beauty of their research data.
