Living Data is a dynamic model of teaching and learning based on conversations between scientists and artists. Together we question, through art and science, how climate change relates to human experience and how strategies that range from conservative to experimental can be used to visualise a complex evolving culture. The Living Data program builds on the PhD research project, Antarctic Animation: Gestures and lines describe a changing environment (UNSW 2010). The Antarctic research resulted in a lexicon of primal gestural forms now used in animation and other visual media to combine scientific data and subjective responses. The research is practice-based. Art is made and papers are published that together contribute knowledge of our place in the living world. The Living Data Blog documents methods used and online peer reviews and comments that ensure ethical use of shared material and allow our impacts to be assessed.
