Earlier in the year we returned to one of our favourite science centres in Tromsø, Northern Norway to install The Climate Machine and Ice Map.
The Climate Machine focuses on how our collective decision making contributes to increased greenhouse gases, and it reveals some surprising sources of a high carbon footprint. Four exhibit stations are connected to a large wall mounted globe that responds to the amount of greenhouse gases released, based on the decisions of the exhibit users.
The other exhibit we created for the Science Centre was developed with The Centre for Arctic Gas Hydrate, Environment and Climate (CAGE). Visitors slide their finger along a timeline to see how the Eurasion ice sheet has grown and receded over the last 27,000 years. We wrote the bespoke software to drive the animation from an opto-electronic touch interface.
