Earth Day will be celebrated on April 21 (Wednesday), and on the eve of the anniversary, the Google platform will showcase a new set of experiments created by artists Giorgia Lupi, Felicity Hammond, Cristina Tarquini and Sey Min.
MADRID (Portaltic / EP)-Google Arts and Culture Platform added four interactive and educational experiments conducted by artists on Tuesday. These experiments are designed to use scientific data about jellyfish, microplastics or sea level rise to educate users about climate information.
Earth Day will be celebrated on April 21 (Wednesday), and on the eve of the event, the Google platform released a set of new experiments created by artists Giorgia Lupi, Felicity Hammond, Cristina Tarquini and Sey Min.
These experiments invite us to understand the challenges facing the Earth’s climate through creative data visualization and interactive scenarios, so that we can learn more about this issue.
First is the visual digital artist Cristina Tarquini Use point cloud visualization to explain why the number of Mediterranean seas is increasing, and this phenomenon explains climate change.
Plastic is broken down into smaller and smaller pieces, called microplastics, which are eventually dispersed in the air we breathe. “Data Artist” Giorgia Lupi (Giorgia Lupi) visualized these particles through a lens.
Through this tool, users can view and discover the plastic particles that continue to exist in the atmosphere, and understand the impact of this “plastic air” on the environment and people’s own health.
In the third part of the content, the artist Xue Min A shock filter has been created to discover animal species that may be lost due to temperature rise.
Sey Min uses a machine learning model for the first time, which uses thousands of Google search images grouped by species. As the temperature rises, users can discover the fate of 62 species of animals and discover a new species in the Anthropocene: waste left by humans.
The fourth and final item is an eight-minute “video collage” created by the artist Felicity Hammond. In it, he introduced a fictional coastal city, The Lagoon, which was gradually submerged in more than 80 years.
The landscape is made from about 50 photos from all over the world, these photos are extremely vulnerable to flooding caused by climate change, and disappear under the water until they disappear completely.
As confirmed, these projects will be exhibited in climate change activities that the United Nations will promote throughout the year. Google.
