My research explores the emergent role of the transdisciplinary curator in the 21st century as an author, spatial story-teller, social catalyst and community builder for art and science projects.
The importance of global participation, public engagement & construction of online communities with a focus on art & science practices. I am also interested in the politics of technology and applied data visualisation as tools for social innovation, collaborative models of co-creation and the globalisation of culture through multimodal writing, sci-fi narratives & digital engagement.
As part of the research, 2-3 projects with organisations such as CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) & Astronomers without Borders will test and measure the impact of global participation through experimental innovation.
- Social Innovation: Collective authorship & expanded social & geographical space. Creation of cybercommunities & collective intelligence.
- Democratisation of technology & creative impact: distribution of global culture through novel prototypes of transdisciplinary project making; interactive infographics, applied data visualisations, human centered design and emergent technologies.
- Multidimensional visualisations: maps, science, networks, narrative visualisations. Develop stories with data that enhance perception & create fascinating and inspiring dialogues between narratives, science, place and audiences
