Echology: making sense of data :: Winning Artists
ANAT, Carbon Arts and Lend Lease congratulate the winning artists for
ECHOLOGY: Making Sense of Data.
ANAT, Carbon Arts and Lend Lease are pleased to announce the winners of the ECHOLOGY: Making Sense of Data competition, which asked artists to envision iconic public artworks generated by real-time data to encourage communities to embrace more sustainable lifestyles. The winning artists and their exceptional projects are:
Core by Gary Deirmendjian for Showgrounds Hill, Brisbane
Terra Sensing Tower by DV Rogers for 1 O’Connell Street, Sydney
Mussel Choir by Natalie Jeremijenko for Docklands, Melbourne
More information about Jeremijenko’s Mussel Choir, a biological artwork using the movements of a mussel colony to communicate water quality improvements can be found here.
In light of the termination of the art+place public art funding program in Queensland and the withdrawal of 1 O’Connell Street as a viable site, we are now pursuing alternative options to realise both Deirmendjian’s and Rogers’ works in the coming year.
Thank you to all of the artists who submitted such evocative and exciting ideas for the use of data as raw material.. it was a fascinating process and both ANAT and Carbon Arts look forward to creating more opportunities for data-driven arts practice in future.
