Environmental Communication and Public Engagement Through Creative Uses of Satellite Data
Keynote Presentation: Grayson Cooke

I am an interdisciplinary scholar and media artist, with a focus on how art and science can work together to develop new figurations of environmental change, its causes and its impacts. In particular, I focus on how Earth Observation satellite data can be used towards this end. While satellite imaging is used extensively and primarily within scientific, governmental and private sector contexts, there is enormous potential when it is taken up across disciplinary boundaries and when aesthetic and affective dimensions are added to scientific frameworks. Responding to the “vulnerabilities” sub-theme of this conference, in this talk I will explore what satellite imaging can show us of the fragility, resilience and remarkable formal beauty of human and non-human environments. I will outline some of my projects and methods, demonstrating how critical and creative uses of satellite data can engage the public and bring new insights into environmental phenomena.
