Julie Freeman translates data from natural sources into kinetic sculptures, physical objects, images, sound compositions and animations. Her work explores relationship between science and the living world; questioning the use of technology in how we translate and perceive nature.
Julie’s focus is the investigation of data as an art material. A mix of artist and computer scientist she often works collaboratively and experimentally with organisations, scientists and curators to curate, develop and produce works, projects and exhibitions around the concept of data and its impact on us.
For COSMOS 2019, we are delighted to announce Julie Freeman as artist in residence. Freeman is collaborating with Jodrell Bank astrophysicists to develop a new immersive audio-visual experience, to be showcased during bluedot festival.
