Artists Lise Autogena (DK) and Joshua Portway (UK) have worked together since the early 90’s. Using custom-built technologies, real time data and video, they have developed large-scale multimedia installations, site-specific works and performances.

Their recent works have explored the conflict over uranium mining in Greenland (Kuannersuit; Kvanefjeld), ways of visualising the world's financial markets as night sky (Black Shoals; Dark Matter) and attempted to find the worlds bluest sky using realtime data from NASA satellites (Most Blue Skies). 

In 2013 they developed Foghorn Requiem, a requiem for a disappearing sound, performed by Souter Lighthouse foghorn, three brass bands and fifty ships on the North Sea.

Lise Autogena is a Professor of Cross-Disciplinary Art at the Cultural Communication and Computing Research Institute (C3RI) at Sheffield Hallam University.
