  5. Boundary Encounters


    22 July 2023


    Boundary Encounters is Modern Art Oxford’s summer programme and collaboration with artists and communities, featuring new work from artists Valerie Asiimwe Amani, Julie Freeman, Harold Offeh and Deborah Pill. 'Another Present' is an intimate listening experience, combining sonic works by women artists from Modern Art Oxford’s archive, audience data and field recordings into sculptures created by Julie Freeman. The sounds reverberate through wooden sculptural forms, inspired by shapes created by the artist’s body. These objects are vessels to hear and feel the space differently; they encourage touch and connection, challenging perceptions of how we learn from the past. The work incorporates, and celebrates, previously commissioned audio works by artists Sarah Kenchington, Ann Liselgaard and Hannah Rickards from Modern Art Oxford’s archives. New material includes field recordings from Medley Bridge, connecting Freeman’s own personal history of Oxford with her father, and their shared love of technology and nature.

  6. Chaleur Humaine


    10 June 2023

    LAAC, Art and Industry Triennial, Dunkerque, France

    Featuring our work Active Living Infrastructure: Controlled Environment (ALICE) the 2nd edition of the Art and Industry Triennial showcases the theme of energy through different lenses, including oil, nuclear power, landscape transformation, work, fatigue, pollution, recycling and the future. Marked by a multidisciplinary approach, it invites us to reflect on the past, present, and future of our relationship with industry through the eyes of artists, engineers, designers, graphic designers, and architects.


  7. Renaissance 3.0


    23 March 2023

    Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe (ZKM), Germany

    Featuring Active Living Infrastructure: Controlled Environment (ALICE) - v2, the exhibition presents contemporary approaches of artists who, on the one hand, continue the lines of research of the preceding renaissances and, on the other, open up new fields of research. It also features convincing parallel research or elective affinities between science and art. The focus is on a new culture of tools. On the basis of 35 media art positions, it provides insights into artistic laboratory situations and artistic-scientific collaborations that open up a shared multidisciplinary "Wissensfeld" (base of knowledge) for the 21st century — from biochemistry to genetic engineering and information design to neuroscience and unconventional computing.


  8. More Than Us

    Special commission for the Hiscox Collection

    02 October 2022

    London, UK

    Exploring climate prediction as a game of chance and of skill, More Than Us offers us a glimpse of the astronomically huge dataspace we exist in. Two communities of colourful geometric shapes drawn, or ‘recycled’, from abstract Suprematist paintings of the early 1900s, congregate, ebb and flow in response to historical and predictive climate catastrophe data sets. Both communities move randomly to find high values in the same data. Engaged in a game of chance, some navigate raw, unstructured data. Others exhibit a more purposeful behaviour as they are driven by pronounced data patterns emerging from an artificial neural network. At the heart of the ever-changing composition, ‘splinters’ from the ‘data spine’ represent real-time digital transactions across the Hiscox businesses.


  9. Digital Nature

    Panel discussion

    09 July 2022

    Barbican Centre, London, UK

    How can digital experiences help us connect with the natural world? In this talk, join artists, activists and digital designers to consider how technology can help us restore our connection to nature. Our current age of rapid urban and technological growth is underpinning today’s ecological crisis. But how can technology help us to repair our broken connection with nature? This panel, including Ersin Han Ersin, Julie Freeman, Kim Boutin and Kalpana Arias, will explore the importance of nature connection in the digital age and the role of technology in restoring our connection to the natural world.



  10. Allusive Protocols


    19 May 2022

    Open Data Institute, London

    *Allusive Protocols (prototypes)* is a series of three kinetic data-driven artwork prototypes – *AP: Space, AP: Land and AP: Sea*. It was created as a thought-experiment during a residency at the Open Data Institute investigating power, diplomacy and ecology in the material internet: the vast networks of cables, satellites and data-centres that connect us. These materials create an infrastructure of information that is often (mis)perceived as ephemeral, and therefore not connected to real-world environmental impacts.

  19. Closing the Gaps

    Digital Catapult

    12 June 2019

    Digital Catapult and the Open Data Institute (ODI) conclude a series of events that delve into the relationship between arts and technology, with an interactive workshop event exploring immersive (virtual, augmented and mixed reality) and future networks technologies (such as 5G and the internet of things). How does an increasingly hybrid environment – where ‘physical’ and ‘virtual’ realities are increasingly indistinguishable – affect interpersonal relationships, our sense of responsibility, empathy, who and what we care about? Closing the gaps invites artists, content makers and industry experts to respond to this evolution of technology and the role it will play in our lives, examining how the online and offline worlds are coming closer together and what social, philosophical, corporeal and emotional challenges, and benefits, arise. The Hybrid Landscapes exhibition is curated and produced by Data as Culture at the ODI.

  20. RAT.systems


    22 June 2017

    FACT, Liverpool

    *The New Observatory* responds to the challenges of standardisation in an increasingly technologically-mediated world. It offers a space where the predictability of things is challenged, where logic may fail, and where that failure can create space for new possibilities. By conjuring new and untold stories, from the personal to the political, micro to macro, abstract numbers are transformed into tactile and immersive artworks: personal health records are metamorphosed into digitally printed seashells, the data of divorce is reassessed, soft robotics visualise the social structures of micro-chipped naked mole rats, open source ground stations trace the constellations of satellites that circle the earth, and animatronic face masks replay covert recordings of NSA employees. It invites visitors to consider how everyday life is a subject of observation in which we all perform as our own micro-observatories, or ‘observatories of ourselves’. It asks us to reassess our roles as active citizens within a ‘surveillance’ culture, where the infrastructure that surrounds and enables our lives is both physical and digital, and to forge more meaningful, critical or intimate relationships with the data landscapes we inhabit. Curated by Hannah Redler Hawes (ODI) and Sam Skinner, the exhibition includes interactive works, installations, sound, film, photography, critical design projects, drawing and mixed media. It will be the world premiere of *Recruitment Gone Wrong* (2016), *Divorce Index* (2016) and *Curtain of Broken Dreams* (2016), three new large-scale commissions by internationally renowned British artists Thomson & Craighead and Natasha Caruana, respectively, who were the ODI’s first ever artists in residence in 2015. Other confirmed artists are: Burak Arikan, Wafaa Bilal, James Coupe, Phil Coy, Julie Freeman, Citizen Sense, David Gauthier, Interaction Research Studio, Rachel Jacobs, Jackie Karuti, Kei Kreutler, Libre Space Foundation, Stanza, Liz Orton, Proboscis (Giles Lane and Stefan Kueppers), Jeronimo Voss, and Yu-Chen Wang.

    Arts Festival

    28 May 2015

    Royal Festival Hall, London

    The Web allows us to communicate with people around the world, making it a vehicle for creative exploration, personal relationships and enormous business opportunities. However, there is also jeopardy. The ‘dark net’ facilitates underground online networks for everything from buying drugs to extreme politics. Also, universal and free access to the Web is under threat, as its governance is in the hands of a small number of people. Held at the Southbank Centre, the festival is inspired by the work of Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web and produced in partnership with Sir Tim's World Wide Web Foundation.

    British Library, London, UK

    Speaking with Ernest Edmonds, Anthony Lilley, Michael Takeo, Kevin Walker *Computational methods for the creation and interpretation of digital Data is an established activity among researchers in all fields of scholarship. Huge amounts of information collected from multiple digital resources are used and combined by scientists, helping them to approach their research questions from interesting angles and innovative perspectives. But the fact is that digital Data is moving beyond research practices to become an inspirational motif in other areas, as it is the case of contemporary artistic expression. Artists are integrating digital Data into their work, helping to translate large amounts of information into meaningful content to their audiences.*

    Women of the World festival at St Paul’s Roof Pavilion

    07 March 2014

    Southbank Centre, London, UK

    *What role are women playing in the tech and digital industry, and how the many aspects of the web can or should be influenced by women’s voices? Does it matter?* *As the percentage of female internet users who use social networking sites surpasses that of men (approx 75% vs. 63%, respectively) it becomes increasingly clear that women are in a powerful position to shape the future of the web and new technologies.  We are also beginning to see the barriers to learning code diminish; the languages and constructs of the web and technologies are becoming more accessible, intuitive, applicable and creatively applied.* *We ask key female influencers, creatives and entrepreneurs in the fields of technology and media about the opportunities they see for women now and in the future. We’ll focus on how women are making, shaping and contributing to the web and new technologies but also question why we still face so many gender inequalities within the digital, technology and media industries.* *Cheryl Bart, board member of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) looks at the future of the media at a time when we’re all journalists. The speakers are Mariéme Jamme, CEO of SpotOne Global Solutions and founder of African Gathering, Open Data Institute artist in resident and computer scientist Julie Freeman and Emma MulQueeny Co-Founder of Rewired State.

  56. Strata EU Conference, London Session: Data as an Art Material.

    Case Study: The Open Data Institute

    11 November 2013

    London, UK

    *Artists use data as an art material in many ways: materialising them physically, sonifying them to amplify natural phenomena, coalescing them to create new realities. They question how objective the treatment of data is, and how much truth do we expect from an artwork with statistical roots? And we are asked to consider whether it matters. If we accept that there is dogma in the artists code, do we accept that it plays a part in other code too?* \ *At the Open Data Institute (ODI) we see the creative use of data as an intrinsic and essential part of our cultural landscape. As part of it’s ongoing operations, the ODI has an Art Programme committed to facilitating artists in the exhibition and creation of works which translate data into something that is meaningful to people’s lives.*\ – Julie Freeman, Art Associate at The ODI
