ABOUT

After hearing of the current Presidential Administration’s deletion of climate data and the ongoing effort of preserving that data by the Data Refuge community, McKissack has been researching mapping and generating visualizations of Oregon LIDAR point cloud data from the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. This data helps scientists' understanding of geographical hazards and model agricultural behaviors. Projecting these visualizations as video loops accompanied by ambient and atmospheric soundscapes, McKissack creates an environment that responds directly to the architecture of the General Automotive Building.

Megan McKissack is a Portland-based new media artist working in the realm of live visuals, video installation, and creative coding.
