Plankton Soup – Participatory installation at the Tech Interactive, San Jose, CA.
‘Build a luminescent mural about Plankton, and learn about these amazing organisms that are for the most part invisible. Today they are under threat due to the climate crisis.’
Phytoplankton are the foundation of the sea’s food chain, They provide between 50% and 85% of the oxygen we breathe! They are as important as the trees! The CO2 emissions due to human activity are changing the ocean in many ways, including its acidification and warming of temperature. Both have important consequences on plankton’s life. Plankton’s future is uncertain.
Installation is created with recyclable materials: black construction paper and stickers made of paper.
