Living Datacontributes to a growing global project to visualise human impacts on natural climate change. Our unique contribution is an evolving visualisation of reality as a vast complex system described in simple lines of human scale. Like a scientific model, the visualisation evolves to reflect new knowledge. Scientists and artists contribute stories, hypotheses, data and iconography. A choreography of primal gestural forms, in dance, drawing and animation, combines scientific and sensory ways of understanding.

ANIMATING CHANGE 2012:
A Living Data exhibition for the Ultimo Science Festival, Sydney

COMMENTS

Lisa Roberts. Excerpt from the fifteen-minute looping Oceanic Living Data Rozelle School of Visual Arts, Sydney, 26 March 2012.

A floating screen of plankton meshis illuminated by animationsthat combine hypotheses, stories, data and iconography shared by scientists and other artists. Like a scientific model, the installation has evolved to reflect current knowledge. The story is that a healthy environment maintains homeostasis (balance) between its parts and that human actions are tipping the natural balance. Recent data are graphs that show sea levels rising and diagrams that show changing patterns of growth in some plants and animals. Iconography are circling, spiraling and crossing lines that dynamically connect parts to suggest the whole system. Unlike a scientific model, this model can be touched. You can move through it and feel part of it.

This excerpt shows variability in the tempo of the music (by Sophie Green) and in the dance of marine algae (Hormosira banksii), waves, dancing hands (of Catherine Magill) and the opening of alveoli (air sacs) in the lungs at the moment of a child's first breath.

2010 Embodiment, Intersubjectivity and Psychopathology International conference, University of Heidelberg, Germany 30 Sept - 2 Oct 2010

During the last decade, the concept of embodiment has become a key paradigm of interdisciplinary approaches from the areas of philosophy, psychology, psychiatry and neuroscience. The body is no longer merely considered as an interesting input for the brain or mind. The new trend is to link embodiment, cognition and emotion in a deeper way, and this has particular repercussions for understanding our social engagements. This in turn has implications for psychopathology and psychotherapy, because embodied and intersubjective views on mental illness can offer new insights useful for diagnosis and remediation.

IMAGINING ANTARCTICA 2008

TOP OF PAGE

 

The animation Imagining a different view is screened at the conference Imagining Antarctica in September 2008 at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand.

 

Examining the Earth's southernmost continent from a cultural perspective will be on the agenda for those taking part in an Antarctic Conference being held at the University of Canterbury next month. The Imagining Antarctica Conference is being convened and hosted by Gateway Antarctica, UC's centre for Antarctic studies and research, in partnership with Massey University and the University of Tasmania.

Drawing on the arts, social sciences and humanities, the three-day conference from 4-6 September will focus attention on the ways we perceive and represent the frozen continent. It will be the first humanities-based Antarctic studies conference and will be followed in 2010 by another at the University of Tasmania in Hobart.

'For Gateway Antarctica and the University of Canterbury this conference on Antarctic arts complements the usual conferences we hold on Antarctic science,' said Gateway Antarctica Centre Manager and conference convenor Michelle Rogan-Finnemore . 'Our aim is to highlight the multi-disciplinary aspects of Antarctic research.'

Imagining Antarctica has been timed to coincide with The Press Christchurch Writers' Festival and a number of the conference's keynote addresses will be delivered by international writers also in town to speak at the literary event.

One of these is English writer Francis Spufford, the author of I May Be Some Time: Ice and the English imagination, a seminal and award-winning cultural history of the British obsession with polar exploring. He will open the conference with a talk looking at the roles for the southern continent in twentieth century culture.

Another highlight of the conference will be the public talk by author and broadcaster Vanessa Collingridge on the evening of Thursday 4 September (the opening session of the writers' festival). She will focus on her acclaimed biography of eighteenth century explorer Captain James Cook, which was made into a prize-winning documentary series Captain Cook: Obsession and Discovery which aired on Prime in New Zealand earlier this year.

The third keynote speaker at the conference is American Dr Elena Glasberg from Princeton University whose dissertation on 'Antarcticas of the Imagination' led to a life-long academic interest in Antarctica, studied from a number of perspectives including postcolonial studies and geopolitics, feminism, law and science.

Home-grown talent included in the line-up of speakers includes poet and creative writing lecturer Professor Bill Manhire, poet and playwright Bernadette Hall and photographer Ann Noble.

ANIMATED DIALOGUES 2007

TOP OF PAGE

 

I present my proposal to research Antarctic Animation:

The aim of this research is first to collect evidence of what the scientists, and others who have worked in Antarctica, have observed and responded to in the landscape; second to devise an on-line animated interface through which to engage viewers with both the science and poetics of the data. Animation will be used to increase understanding of changes in Antarctic landscape as identified in the records provided by Antarctic workers - the people who have studied it, and physically endured a full year of its changing landscape.

Lisa Roberts Animated Dialogues 2007 Conference Programme p. 28

 

The Animated Dialogues conference was hosted by Monash University and the Victorian College of the Arts.

Animated Dialogues brings together scholars from a range of disciplines whose work brings critical perspectives to bear on animation industries, texts and audiences. This event offers a rare opportunity for academics and other professionals from Australia and overseas to network and share their viewpoints on a wide array of animation topics shaped by their cross-disciplinary interests related to the study of animation.

The 'Changing Nature' exhibition explores the profound changes being imposed on global and local natural places by climate change and technology. It invites considerations of the symbolic place of nature in our lives, how we shape our environment and how it shapes us? What does it mean to be human in a world where genetic engineering and nanotechnology are set to reshape our world gene by gene, atom by atom? What are the implications of humans changing the climate and altering the cycles of nature upon which life depends?

2002: Roget's Circular The Academy Gallery, University of Tasmania, Launceston, Tasmania
Drawing, painting, digital prints, interactive animation. Lisa Roberts (L) and Melissa Smith (R)

Roget's Circular (Roget) is an interactive animated work that combines the responses that two artists made to places in Australia and Europe. Media elements including images, words, sounds, and animations, were developed in collaboration with Melissa Smith. Roget was exhibited as a touch screen installation in a suitcase, surrounded by drawings, paintings and other objects that were made as it was developed.

Four main ideas emerged from reviewing Roget's Circular:

1. That my European forebears represented environments as static landscapes provoked the idea that animation could be used to convey an experience of moving through them.

2. Because people who have worked in Antarctica describe it as possibly the most dynamic and elemental environment, an sense of being there may be described through simple gestures and line drawings that reflect their knowledge.

3. Digital animations can be arranged on interfaces with art works and written texts to represent the same environment from different perspectives.

4. In Roget, artistic responses of two women were combined to describe some environments around some easily accessible places. To describe Antarctica, the most inaccessible continent, would require access to the knowledge of people who have observed and experienced it. Ways of working with more than one person would be needed to gather and record how people describe their knowledge of Antarctica.

 

 

Roget's Circular is a unique multimedia work ...
Created by two artists, it draws on the Australian landscape, and on imagination, memory and family history.

Site map for Terra Incognita. Coded by Ruth Luxford, 1997

Terra Incognita is an interactive animated work that reflects the creative process of Australian writer, Carmel Bird. Its maze-like site map was conceived as a visual display of the serendipitous nature of her creative process. This structure displays media elements in a way that suggested chance encounters.

A sense of chance encounters, with people and places, was replicated in Antarctic Animation by arranging texts on screens in different combinations.
