Kaspar uses data based on real oil spills, sea currents and observed behaviour of liquids to manufacture virtual oil spills. This information is used to discourage oil wells being built at certain sites.
I am a media artist from New Zealand. My art practice mainly results in media installations but I also work with single channel video. I am currently the Artist-in-Residence at NERI (national Environmental Research Institute) in Denmark to research material for the exhibition IMPACT.In 2006 I first collaborated with micro-meteorologists as the digital artist in residence at the University of Waikato. Currently I am on the guest editorial panel of a special issue of MIT’s Leonardo Journal. I am a board member of ADA (Aotearoa Digital Arts network), and a member of Synapse, the art-science collaboration network in Australia.
I am currently a PhD research student at the university of Melbourne. I am researching historical and contemporary instances of art-science interaction/collaboration in Meteorology and climate science.
