Other TitlesPerforming data
AbstractI am interested in ‘Performing data’, revealing data to an audience in various embodied forms - sometimes slowly, sometimes live – to elicit emotions, engage the imagination, and to inspire an audience to reflect. Making links to our natural world and exposing the beauty of it is of high priority to me, as an artist and I am keen to find innovative ways of communicating scientific and environmental research to a public audience. The Hastings Sound Fountain at FACT was controlled by data being sent LIVE from Hastings Pier. A sensor on the end of the pier is recording the rise and fall of the sea level and the levels trigger the rise and fall in the sound frequencies being sent to the Fountain. As the sensor tracks the rise and fall of the sea, frequencies sweep through the Sound Fountain, causing ripples and waves on the water surface. A visualisation of the live data and footage of the sea beneath the sensor can be projected or viewed on a monitor close to the fountain.
