In this talk, ODI Artist in Residence Rohini Devasher and artist/ODI Art Associate Julie Freeman discuss using technology and data to strengthen our connection to the natural world and our understanding of climate change challenges.

(This talk was originally presented at the V&A Digital Design Weekend)

About the speakers

Rohini Devasher’s current research brings together her interest in early scientific observational instruments and contemporary observational sciences, specifically astronomy and atmospheric sciences, to study the twin aspects of the Earth’s skies: its celestial constants on one hand and the mutable objects of the atmosphere on the other.

Through her practice, Julie Freeman translates complex processes and data from natural sources into kinetic sculptures, physical objects, images, sound compositions, animations, VR & AR, questioning the use of data and digital technology in how we translate nature.
