Data Studio: Environmental Change
As part of the Future Knowledge exhibition, designer/artist Lucy Kimbell will host a practical workshop called a Data Studio. Building on other activities including cross-disciplinary data sprints, hackathons, co-design workshops and jams, this ‘studio’ will apply creative techniques to models and data and translate them for other contexts and publics. Working in collaboration with the Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford, and Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, this Data Studio will explore and materialise models and data about environmental change, raising questions about how models are constructed, translated, mediated and engaged with and the publics, audiences and users involved. People from a range of backgrounds are invited to participate, including environmental scientists, social and humanities researchers as well as activists, sustainability managers, and local residents. The workshop is part of an ongoing exhibition-as-inquiry at Modern Art Oxford that explores different ways that artists and designers produce and mediate knowledge.
