Andy Freeman

Andy Freeman works with communities and artists to create digital and citizen science interventions to build awareness of digital, social and environmental issues. His practice has ranged from internet audio performance tools (earshot 1998-2002) through to citizen science based attempts to trace the movement of pollutants around the Thames estuary using sensor networks and digital mapping (Talking Dirty, 2015).

Andy has a wide experience of internet development for the media sector and currently teaches interdisciplinary courses in digital methods and visualisation for Goldsmiths’ Department of Computing. Current research interests include citizen science, digital mapping and tools for hyperlocal journalism and activism.
