Living Data: Art from climate science at the Muse

A dramatic art exhibition inspired by climate science.

See through icy veils of mesh as art and data come together to create past, present and future forms of life. Wonder at physical and virtual models of life forms as they evolve. Discover your genetic ancestors in the algae that photosynthesise light to make the energy that sustains us.

Immerse yourself in an exhibition that challenges your senses with artworks that combine scientific and sensory knowledge of climate change.

Curated by Dr Lisa Roberts, Living Data program leader and Visiting Fellow at the University of Technology,Sydney, you’ll have a chance to take part in ground-breaking art and science talks, see dramatic climate-inspired dance and hear primal music.

Artists contributing include Tega Brain, Paul Fletcher, Eveline Kolijn, Josh Wodak, Andrea Leigh, Rose McGreevy, Brad Miller, Caterina Mocciola, Antonia Poseda,Vikki Quill, Lisa Roberts, Melissa Smith, Takuya Suzuki, Leanne Thompson, Paul Sutton, Dean Walsh, Shona Wilson,  Malou Zuidema.

Dr Roberts is a multimedia visual artist whose work combines scientific and sensory knowledge of climate change. Her formal studies include dance, visual arts, animation, Indigenous perspectives and Antarctic perceptions. Lisa Roberts is the great grand daughter of the prominent Australian painter Tom Roberts.
