Living Data



DATA: Information output by a sensing device or organ that includes both useful and irrelevant information
and must be processed to be meaningful. Ref. Merriam Webster dictionary

PRIMAL FORMS convey implicit meanings to scientific data that give them dual resonnance
when the data are recognised as both scientific information and expressions of connection.
Ref. Roberts. Antarctic Animation: Gestures and lines describe a changing environment2010 PhD thesis

CONNECTIVITY: [E]nvironmental values derive from a sense of connectivity with nature.

In 2010 scientist Andrew Constable explains what he means by modelling and challenges me to "make a scientific model attractive to people through art". This video began as a joke, a play on words: I would be an artist's model within a scientist's model of the world.
