Corby & Baily, with Jonathan Mackenzie

Southern Ocean Study # 1.0

Abstract:
Southern Ocean Study #1.0 aims to explore how Climate Models can function as expressive visual and conceptual representations of climate change, beyond their original scientific contexts and purpose. The project is a wall projected, real-time rendering of a Climate Model used to track and predict the impacts of climate change in the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (Southern Ocean), mixed with live eco data from the region.
