Imagine living alongside artworks that reflect the choices that you and your local communities are making towards achieving a sustainable future… artworks that live and breathe, that reward your choices and encourage change.
ECHOLOGY brings together Australia’s leading artists and urban developers to create data-driven public artworks that engage with serious issues in evocative and playful ways.

Melbourne Seminar: March 26
ECHOLOGY: Making Sense of Data brings together Australia’s leading creative talent, a world leader in urban development and three urban communities to create data-driven public artworks that drive meaningful engagement with issues surrounding sustainability, climate change and resource use.
ECHOLOGY: Making Sense of Data is a three-stage project that will support the utilisation of real-time data and sensing in the production of artworks for the public realm. Each of the stakeholder groups involved with the project have different, but complementary objectives that together can be met through the project’s realisation.
ECHOLOGY: Making Sense of Data is presented by the Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT) in partnership with Carbon Arts.
