UN & Google Collaborate on Interactive Art Project

Five artists from around the globe have teamed up with the Google Arts and Culture Lab and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to produce a series of interactive art pieces that explore the current climate crisis.

The artists used UN Reports and data from a variety of institutions to address a number of climate related issues across multiple Sustainable Development Goals, such as Climate Action, Responsible Consumption and Production, Life Below Water and Life of Land to create the interactive art: 

  • ‘Timelines’ by Fabian Oefner explores the shrinkage of Swiss glaciers over the last 140 years. 
  • ‘What We Eat’ by Laurie Frick demonstrates food footprints in the UK, France, and USA. 
  • ‘Diving into an Acidifying Ocean’ by Cristina Tarquini explores the impact of rising temperatures on marine life. 
  • ‘Coastline Paradox’ by Timo Aho and Pekka Niittyvirta demonstrates predicted rising sea levels due to the climate emergency. 

You can view all the above interactive art pieces online for free on the Experiments with Google site here.
