Transform data into art with Sensing Sydney

City of Sydney and Carbon Arts are inviting proposals for a temporary public artwork that engages with data on Sydney’s progress towards Sustainable Sydney 2030

This public art commission is part of Sensing Sydney: communicating sustainability through the arts, open data and public space, a City of Sydney and Carbon Arts project which aims to bring historic and real time data alive in ways that celebrate our collective efforts to address environmental challenges.

The work will be presented as part of Art & About Sydney, an annual festival produced and presented by the City of Sydney, which celebrates art in unusual places. The 2013 festival will run from Friday 20 September to Sunday 20 October 2013.

Successful applications will explore the different pathways for creative use of data and technology to engage the public in an active dialogue on environmental issues and citizen-engaged action. Sustainability data in Sydney is available for download here. Additional or alternative sources of data can be requested or proposed by the artist.

Deadline for submissions is Monday, 20 May 2013
