Artist Natalie Jeremijenko’s work, Amphibious Architecture (2009), provides a portal to understanding the health of the marine environment in the urban context of New York City. Consisting of a floating array of LED lights on the surface of the Brooklyn river, sensors collect data on dissolved oxygen and water pH and send signals to the lights, which change colour as water conditions vary – red is poor quality, blue is good. When the lights flash it means that fish have just passed below.
Welcome to the Seed bank
Art and culture have the power to bring people together, challenge the status quo and create the imaginary and real spaces from which new ways of living together can emerge.
This seed bank gathers examples of people, projects and organisations from around the world doing just that. They are tagged in the following categories; well-being, democracy and sustainable livelihoods.
This is just a start – if you have a project for the seed bank, please send a link to firstname.lastname@example.org
