LISTENING TO DATA – How the environment gets into the computer

We can neither touch them, nor hear, smell or taste them – data collected via measuring instruments in the sea. Since 2012, the artist Prof. Hannes Rickli has been following the digital data work of biolog:ins investigating the behavior of fish in the Arctic Ocean at the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI). In several installations, he processes the physical emissions of the research equipment, infrastructures and landscapes involved in sounds, images and videos: The exhibition DATEN LAUSCHEN – LISTENING TO DATA will be on view at the German Maritime Museum (DSM) / Leibniz Institute for Maritime History in Bremerhaven from June 3 to July 31, 2022.
