This multi-sensory experience communicates the dangers of climate change and augments your perception of the surrounding environment. The project is part of a programme which brings together art, science and digital technology and offers innovative, interdisciplinary and collaborative responses to climate change.
Urban environments affect the physical and mental health of billions of people living in the cities. Although science is quickly moving forward to quantify and map the quality of urban environments, raising awareness and communicating comfort levels and how the health of populations, or how nature in cities is effected, are in their early stages. This project brings together a multimedia artist, architect, scientist and green technology expert to design and produce a prototype interactive sculpture, which communicates real-time data about the surrounding environment in an intuitive and powerful way.
The project will launch with an immersive performance (in person event), and is accompanied by an educational programme on the subject of communicating climate science through the arts.
The project team includes female architect and inclusive ecologies expert Xenia Adjoubei
, new media and sonic artist Taras Mashtalir
, scientific health methodology from Djinn Sensors
, green technology expert Guy Eames
and student assistants from MASI, Pratt Institute.
