Move the Needle
The result of a year long residency with the New York Mayor's Office of Sustainability, these three 6 foot meters measure live feeds of three data streams: the number of people taking climate change action or promising to do so, the amount of electricity being used in New York, and the number of people gathering across the street in the plaza in City Hall Park.
This project was in fabrication when the Covid-19 pandemic struck New York, putting it far back on the back burner. To be continued in this or a different form.
