Measured and stored at standard atmospheric pressure, one tonne of CO2 occupies a cube the size of a three-story building 8.2m x 8.2m x 8.2m (27ft x 27ft x 27ft)! This is the amount of CO2 the average person in an industrialized country emits each month.
CO2 CUBES – Visualize a Tonne of Change is presented by Millennium ART in partnership with the United Nations Department of Public Information, powered by Google and YouTube, and produced by Obscura Digital.
“Obscura deployed a 4-D Hypercube User Interface System as a dynamic media portal that is capable of viewing web based, real-time, and produced content that is integrated into public art sculptures. 4D content delivery offers new dimensions for audiences to interact with visual concepts, this exhibit presents what 1 metric tonne of carbon dioxide looks like through earth, art, science, and individual content sources from around the world,” stated Travis Threlkel, Creative Director of Obscura Digital.
