Nine Planets Wanted!

Zago, New York, New York, 2008

Description

Nine Planets Wanted! is an installation that transforms data from the UNDP 2007/2008 Human Development Report into a three-dimensional space. It aims to heighten visitors’ understanding of the inverse relationship between responsibility for climate change and vulnerability to its impact. Twelve island-like beanbag seats displayed in a red-and-blue-striped lounge offer a comparative view of carbon-dioxide volumes emitted around the world, as do the puffy seats where visitors can read the installation’s newsprint piece.

The installation’s title is a reminder that if every person in the world left the same carbon footprint as the average North American, we would need the atmospheres of nine planets to deal with the consequences.

Juror Notes

This project presents very complex data in a meaningful and concise way. The exhibition strategy is inventive, contemporary and engaging. The information is received through multiple formats; completely user-friendly and downright playful—we love it!! Special commendation for not using the color green!
