Ottawa Children’s Festival – Under The Sea
Directing and teaching two grade.7 classrooms about interactive art, together we created an interactive piece for the Ottawa International Children’s Festival to promote global warming and climate change awareness.
Visitors to this space could interact with elements such as the fish, birds, and bubbles using their hands. Using this interaction as a metaphor for climate change awareness and action when there was no interaction the waters would rise, glaciers melt, and the temperature rise visually. Conversely, when there was interaction the effects would be reversed.
This piece was on display at the 2012 Ottawa International Children’s Festival May 30th – June 3rd.
