Julie Ryder
Australia

Artist in residence October 2004 – March 2005
Julie is working closely with the scientists at the CPBR on the little understood world of cryptogams-spore-bearing plants without flowers or seeds, which include the mosses, hornworts, liverworts and ferns. With a background in textile design, Julie is increasingly working with new media technologies to enable the development of new techniques and designs. With access to electron microscopy, the residency will explore the visualisation and display of small-scale objects and applying web-based technology to exchange visual information about these fascinating organisms and their role in modern ecology.

The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
