Workshop: Astronomical data analysis for creative applications
By Xavier Luri
Friday 15 Jun
Host Institution: Sónar Festival
The astronomical community generates large amounts of data available to researchers and enthusiasts. This data consists of photographs from different regions and objects from the firmament, taken using a variety of sensors – thus, energy from celestial bodies is recorded in the visible spectrum, as well as in frequencies that our eyes cannot detect, like X-rays.
The potential of data analysis in coding creative projects (i.e. sonifications, visuals, etc) will be exhibited through direct collaboration with a researcher specialised in astronomical data analysis.
This workshop will be conducted by artist Román Torre and Astrophysics professor Xavier Luri (University of Barcelona).
