SINE: Internalizing Science through Art and Visualization of Data from the Natural World
This project considers how local ecological catastrophes are contextualized within global climate science and the international news cycle. In line with MediaFutures’ objectives of considering the role of data in journalism, science, transparency, and democracy, we will develop a tool to study how science is reported, at times sensationalised, and even forgotten. A resulting artwork will allow the viewer to experience these insights directly.
The integration of various media outlets with social media platforms has accelerated the 24 hour news cycle. For various political and economic reasons, data indicating climate change is often contentious, resulting in natural catastrophes appearing as anomalous events which are dropped from the news cycle soon after they appear. By integrating various data sources and algorithms into a single experience we aim to provide a single vantage point that can take in the global and local scales of climate change situated in current and historical time.
