This workshop engages various approaches that scientists, academics, artists, filmmakers, and activists take in climate change visualization, focusing especially on moving images. Spanning interactive data visualization to time lapse photography to documentary, moving images are the primary mode through which climate change is conveyed. From the perspectives of environmental media practices, theories, and approaches, this workshop engages visual representations of global effects of climate change with a particular emphasis on those of the Arctic region. This all-day event is free and open to the public -- please feel free to drop in as schedules allow.
