Feel the Globe

"Feel & See the Globe" is a thermal, interactive installation. The central idea is to map temperature information in regions around the world from prehistoric, modern to futuristic times onto a low fidelity display. The display visually communicates global temperature rates and lets visitors experience the temperature physically through a tangible, thermal artefact. A pertinent educational aim is to inform and teach about global warming.
