Modelling Morecambe Bay 2021

This animation was commissioned by Environmental Modelling researchers at Lancaster University, and explores their use of new digital technologies to respond to complex realities of place. After researching their methods of visualising environmental data, I developed drawings which were subsequently animated using creative coding methods to make links between data and images. The soundtrack features the voice of Prof Gordon Blair evocatively describing his research. The synthesis of voice and data drawings effectively conveys the complexities of the research.

The animation was selected for Raw Science film festival, Bristol Science film festival, UK, and shortlisted for the Jean Golding Data Science film prize in 2022
