Title: Multi modal visualisation- integrating touch into the understanding of complex information.

Abstract: Kate will discuss her research into creating accurate models of data using experimental digital fabrication processes.

A key premise of her research is that multiple senses and platforms can be used concurrently to convey and understand information.

Short Biography: Kate Dunn is a practicing artist and designer with a strong international research background. Kate’s research is practiced-based and investigates experimental digital fabrication and robotics for the purpose of creating tangible data visualisations.

The research investigates the potential of creative tangible and embodied Interactions to facilitate scientific literacy through an interdisciplinary collaboration with artists, designers and scientists. Climate change data is interpreted and 3 dimensionally represented using a range of experimental digital fabrication techniques in consultation with scientists. A key element of Dunn's research is the development of sustainable materials for digital fabrication.

Kate has over 15 years undergraduate and postgraduate teaching experience in Australia’s leading art and design colleges and Universities and has had over 40 exhibitions both nationally and internationally.
