How could the complex global phenomenon of climate be experienced in an individual and sensory way? This is the question explored by this exhibit, evolved as a cooperation between the research project SysSon and the ADRIART – Life Long Learning project. A floating topography invites the public to an immersive and interactive experience. The space is pervaded by a composition of audible climate data, where sensors generate impulses to modulate the sound, capturing physical displacements and tangible contact.
