Abstract

Artistic practices of data collection frequently reconfigure the ways in which we imagine ecosystems to operate. The interventions the author discusses here explore atmospheric conditions through visualization and sonification of data collected about phenomena indirectly experienced by the viewer. Each of the projects examined in this paper specifically address the unbalancing effects on the land and atmosphere of the byproducts of human technologies. Additionally, these artworks demonstrate how human subjectivity cannot simply encapsulate experience of the world as if from an outside perspective, but must be incorporated into the greater environmental systems of which it is a part.
