Data-Driven Innovation for Sustainable Creative Practice

Lechelt, Susan; Panneels, Inge; Helgason, Ingi

We present a film exhibiting eight case studies of projects dealing with the intersections of environmental sustainability, data and technology, which have all been led by and rooted in the creative industries in Scotland. The film highlights how the creative sector has been utilising data and technology to address the climate crisis, by responding artistically to environmental data, as well as developing tools and technologies to empower individual and systemic change. Through presenting the film, we demonstrate the synergies between HCI research and technology-focussed work in the creative industries, in context of the shared goal of sustainability. Our overarching aim is to promote discussion about how knowledge from the creative industries can be seen as a powerful resource to be learned from in HCI and to inspire further HCI design and research, as well as to demonstrate the potential value of collaborative work between creative practice and HCI.
