Nina Czegledy, Ramon Guardans, John Fass, László Kiss, and Jose David Cuartas Correa are collaborators on Galactic wind data visualisation project (working title), 2012. This involves using live NASA data of galactic wind, which is visualised as drops of water falling into a tank. Nina Czegledy is a trained artist-scientist, Ramon Guardans is a United Nations Environmental Monitor, John Fass is an interaction design specialist, László Kiss works out of The Kitchen Budapest and Jose David Cuartas Correa works in multimedia design and is a proponent of free software: clearly this team is interdisciplinary, utilising the skills of the collective to create a connection from Puke Ariki to galaxies in space, via the records of interstellar energy bursts. Achieving this work involves people from three continents and five countries. An interest in cosmology is shared among many groups of humanity.
