I want to use human rights data to make art that changes us, and moves us toward an equal and just future.

Julie Freeman’s work spans visual, audio and digital art forms and explores how science and technology changes our relationship to nature, through transforming complex processes and data sets into sound compositions, objects and animations. Based in UK, she is a TED Senior Fellow, a co-founder of the Data as Culture art programme at the Open Data Institute (ODI), and holds a PhD in Media & Arts Technologies from Queen Mary University of London. Julie is Fine Acts’ co-founder.
