Dec. 7th - Copenhagen, Denmark

Obscura had deployed a 4-D Hypercube User Interface System as a dynamic media portal that is
capable of viewing web based, real-time, and produced content that is integrated into public art
sculptures. 4D content delivery offers new dimensions for audiences to interact with visual
concepts, this exhibit presents what 1 metric tonne of carbon dioxide looks like through earth, art,
science, and individual content sources from around the world, stated Travis Threlkel, Creative
Director of Obscura Digital.

CO2 CUBES - Visualize a Tonne of Change is a digital media art installation and global communications platform presenting engaging visual content about our individual impact on climate change. What does 1 metric tonne of carbon dioxide (CO2) look like? Measured and stored at standard atmospheric pressure, it occupies a cube the size of a three-story building 8.2m x 8.2m x 8.2m (27ft x 27ft x 27ft)! This is the amount of CO2 the average person in an industrialized country emits each month. Running from 7-18 December 2009, during the historic UN Climate Change Conference, the CO2 CUBES exhibit enables participants to physically and virtually take part in the global dialogue on reducing our CO2 emissions, and provides a portal for sharing ideas and solutions.

CO2 CUBES Visualize a Tonne of Change is presented by Millennium ART in partnership with the United Nations Department of Public Information, powered by Google and YouTube, produced by Obscura Digital, hosted by the City Council of Copenhagen, and located at the Tycho Brahe Planetarium.
