Tittel

Cultural Interfaces to Environmental Data

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

This project involves research and production of cultural interfaces to environmental data for a leading cultural institution, The National Science and Technology Center, Questacon. The project works with data derived from the physical environment; its structure, energy consumption, climate, and the environmental effects of visitors themselves; and aims to visualize that data in novel touch, touch-less and mobile interfaces that promote exploration and discovery by visitors. The project focuses in ARC National Research Priorities “An environmentally sustainable Australia” and “Frontier technologies for Building and Transforming Australian Industries”. Our research question, “how can data help reveal important narratives of the built environment and create new forms of non-expert engagement with the environment” addresses the role of the creative industries in engaging the public with abstract terms such as sustainability and clean energy. It also addresses the creative researcher’s responsibility in conveying vital issues such as climate change. The project will build on Sanchez Laws’ research in in-situ design and evaluation of cultural touch interfaces, hardware, and mobile interfaces; Hinchcliffe’s research in cultural interface aesthetics; Hinton’s expertise in data-visualization of museum collections; Whitelaw’s research into 2D and 3D data forms of environmental data; and Barrass’ research in sonification and cross-media. In addition to the final products to be installed in situ and their high public visibility (Questacon receives more than 400,000 visitors per year), outcomes will include publications in A* ranked outlets (“Convergence” and “Human-Computer Interaction” journals and “Museums and the Web”, IEEE and ACM conferences) and a project website.
