Tracing the Wild

I was the lead artist for this new dynamic data-driven art project alongside creativity hub Nairobi Design in collaboration with data architect Daria Smakhtina and Sovereign Nature Initiatives Director of Creative Engagement Seth Bockley. The SNI visualises predator data from Kenya Wildlife Trust (KWT) as a series of digital and physical data-based ‘portraits’ along with interactive artwork created in collaboration with tech developers, designers, and story gatherers.

The project harnessed data from lions’ patterns of territorial movement and conflict with humans to create phygital art that illustrates the predator ecosystem in Kenya’s Maasai Mara region.
