Living Data – Inclusion

Lisa Roberts invites us to meet some of those involved in the ‘Ecological Surprises and Rapid Collapse of Ecosystems in a Changing World’ Conference.



I work in Antarctica and not many people get to go to Antarctica. So it’s really important to have artists and other people help us to communicate – to bring Antarctica to people. And often with species as well – tiny little species that nobody knows anything about. I can write a paper, I can do a bit of media, but if an artist can bring that species to life and reach a bigger audience, to bring an ecosystem to life, that’s a really powerful thing and that’s why we need the interaction of arts and science.
