Caroline Casey '21, Nikki Stevens (PhD candidate) and Jacque Wernimont (Distinguished Chair, Digital Humanities and Social Engagement) have worked collaboratively to build an interactive and tactile installation to help people understand energy usage in the United States. Climate and data scientists have continued to search for ways to make large scale data sets and long-term problems accessible to non-specialist audiences. Energy Pools is an effort to use large-scale art installation with recycled textiles to make energy data accessible and tactile and to encourage viewers to explore the steps needed to change the future of energy use in the United States. This talk will feature a discussion of the creation of the installation and thoughts on how tactile engagement with energy data might facilitate information understanding.
