#carbonfeed - A Conversation about Technology, Art, and the Environment
April 13, 20157:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Thorne Hall, Daggett Lounge
Talk and Reception to introduce and explain #CarbonFeed, a new media project by John Park and Jon Bellona, which will be installed at the Hawthorne-Longfellow Library April 13th-May 13th. #CarbonFeed directly challenges the popular notion that virtuality is disconnected from reality. Through sonifying Twitter feeds and correlating individual tweets with data visualization in public spaces, the work reveals the environmental cost of online behavior and its supportive physical infrastructure.
#CarbonFeed encourages all participants to take part in the installation by tweeting #carbonfeed and #bowdoin throughout the installation, April 13-May 13. Your tweet will trigger the installation while emitting 0.02g/C02e. Learn more about #CarbonFeed or listen to your own Twitter feed at http://carbonfeed.org.
