Heartbeat of the Earth: interpreting our planet’s data

What can jellyfish teach us about climate change, what happens to disposed plastic and what species will be lost as temperatures rise? As these questions mount, artists are helping us to see and understand what the data makes clear.

A year ago, and in collaboration with Google Arts & Culture we (the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change – UNFCCC) launched “Heartbeat of the Earth” — four interactive and educational experiments by artists exploring scientific climate data. 

Today, as we approach Earth Day, we’re sharing a new set of climate experiments created by artists Giorgia Lupi, Felicity Hammond, Cristina Tarquini and Sey Min. They invite you to learn about the challenges our climate faces through creative data visualizations and interactive scenarios that help us learn more about these topics.
