In this round table, the authors of HEXA project discuss with glaciologists some ideas, challenges and methods involved in the translation of scientific data regarding Schiaparelli Glacier into visual and sound representations. The conversation focuses on how HEXA explores mathematical behaviours in nature from the convergence between artistic imaginaries and scientific research.
