Talk: Hotter and Drier: Visualizing and Sonifying Climate Data

We all expect the hotter and drier earth due to human-induced climate change by observing various environmental data. This talk will explore data artworks that visualize and sonify climate change data such as California drought, wildfire in South Korea and California, and endangered animals due to climate change. The projects are parts of the data art series created by the speaker that can raise more awareness on fundamental changes and actions from the audience.
