Living Data are responses of living things (including us) to our changing climate, and the name of a program for understanding through science and art.
Living Data principles are that presentations be true to science, clear in language, surprising (showing something new) and appealing to the senses.
The program is independently led by artist Lisa Roberts whose collaborations with scientists and other artists are supported by private patrons and corporate sponsors. Key scientific data come from the University of Technology Sydney and the Australian Antarctic Division. Living Data contributors are independently supported scientists, artists, and people from other fields who have an interest in advancing science-art interactions.
Living Data contributes to a growing global network of programs for understanding our place in the changing natural 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).
