University brief featured at Central Saint Martins x Think & Do Climate Emergency Workshop

This project explores the significance of unnecessary British weather talk1and an imaginative, a more sustainable future if people talked about a topic as urgent as climate change instead.

To do so, The Climate Conversation Plant uses a voice activated program that listens to unique key phrases surrounding the topic of weater and responds with factual climate change statements based on the book ‘The Uninhibitable Earth’ by David-Wallace-Wells. This plant hosted device is then placed in social settings throughout London. By disrupting and creating conversation, I hope that this experience could make climate change a continuing subject matter in everyday conversation.
