AHRC: Data Landscapes: Toward an Art of Environmental Change

In May 2010 CREAM was awarded AHRC funding to coordinate a research network addressing the theme Representing Environmental Change as part of the Landscape and Environmentproject.

This collaboration between CREAM and the British Antarctic Survey brings together leading digital artists, scientists, academics, as well as public and private institutions to explore the creative potential of Climate data. The network investigates how multidisciplinary art-science practices can appropriate data models and disseminate them to new audiences.

A series of workshops will run throughout 2010-11 culminating in a public exhibition of works and discussion of findings.

The project is run by Dr Tom Corby (CREAM) and Nathan Cunningham (British Antarctic Survey) and includes participants from the Journal of Visual Culture, SCAN, The Arts Catalyst, The British Library, University of Cambridge and University of Melbourne amongst others.

AHRC: DataArt at BBC Backstage: information visualisation for the people

In November 2009 Dr Tom Corby was awarded an AHRC Knowledge Transfer fellowship to work with BBC Learning and BBC Backstage to find new ways of visualizing its online information.

This project will publish a series of data visualisations on a dedicated website DataArt that demonstrate how to use and understand BBC data. The website will provide a platform for members of the general public and visualisation experts alike to learn and participate in the project by gaining access to visualisations produced by the project team, downloadable software and learning resources.

The project will run over a period of 22 months culminating in a public discussion of findings an exhibition of works at the University of Westminster gallery.
