By now I’ve entirely abandoned all previous plans for making anything concrete during this residency and just focus on research. I’ve met some great people, each with their own reason to be here, and gained a bunch of new and […]

Having ploughed through several scientific papers I’ve made my decisions with respect to the data I want to use for a preliminary sonification model or, if you prefer, the narrative. Though ti’s obvious now, I hadn’t realised that CO2 data from […]
