Mississippi River Oxygen is a kinetic artwork that showcases
the real-time data visualization of the oxygen levels in the iconic
Mississippi waterway, which is lowering due to climate change.
The artwork displays more or fewer bubbles, dynamically
changing in size and quantity, depending on the current oxygen
content in the water.
In addition to the data visualization, when you approach the
artwork, you see your reflection in the piece, making you part of
the story and art. This interactive feature enhances the
artwork’s ability to engage its audience and inspire action
towards environmental preservation.
