The Future is Red
"The Earth, Our Home: Art, Technology, and Critical Action" ACM SIGGRAPH Digital Arts Community Exhibition
The Future is Red is a data art installation that provides an interactive audiovisual experience to reveal the reality of climate change to audiences. Audiences can participate in this interactive art that presents two regions’ wildfire data in visual and audio forms. As a California-based artist, I have been observing and directly experiencing the wildfires and related issues. I was also born and raised in South Korea and wanted to compare the severe wildfire data of South Korea and the ones of California and observe the similarity and differences between the two regions through the data. The audience members can learn about the wildfire and related damages in detail by observing 3D printed sculptures made of recycled filaments. Red-colored prints represent the wildfires, and black-colored prints attached at the bottom represent the air quality of two regions.
