DATA: Information output by a sensing device or organ that includes both useful and irrelevant or redundant information and must be processed to be meaningful. Ref. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/data
[T]he strength of the symbol is in direct proportion to the power it has to convey an array of implicit meanings, which need to remain implicit to be powerful. Ref. Iain McGilchrist. 2010 The Master and his Emissary:

Oceanic Living Data: Animating change Iteration 03
A dance evolves to visualise humans as Living Data, animating change with other living systems.
Primal gestural forms are traced to model forces of change that are physical, biological, emotional.
Like a scientific model, a visualisation evolves to present new knowledge that can guide future action.
Evolution of the model appears in Presentations.The Living Data Blogreveals how stories,
hypotheses, data and iconography are combined.

Scientist Andrew Constable explains what he means by modelling. He challenges me to "make a scientific model attractive to people through art". I start on this animation as a joke, a play on words. I will be an artist's model in a scientist's model of the southern oceans. The idea evolves as an animated dance. The dance visualises us as living data, animating change, along with other living systems.
Core scientific data come from the Australian Antarctic Division
and the Faculty of Environmental Science
University of Technology, Sydney (UTS).
