Big Question: Feast or Famine?

"The world population is growing by 75 million people each year. That's almost the size of Germany. Today, we're nearing 7 billion people. At this rate, we'll reach 9 billion people by 2040. And we all need to eat. But how? That's a critical issue the IonE tackles in our first Big Question video.

At the same time, agriculture is a major contributor to climate change and will suffer as an industry from the consequences."

(Institute on the Environment, 2009, University of Minnesota)

Translator II - Grower: Robotic Enviromental Interpreter

Creative Capital Foundation
Translator II: Grower, in which a small rover vehicle moves around the periphery of a space drawing vertical lines up and down on the wall with a green crayon. At the end of the installation the bases of all four walls will be covered with fine green lines, which together resemble a cross–section drawing of a field of grass. The height of each line is determined by the level of carbon dioxide present in the room, which the robot reads via a small digital sensor mounted on its shell. It draws a green line after each reading, then moves forward slightly before taking its next reading. The carbon dioxide, of course, is generated by gallery visitors, who affect the "growing" of the robot's drawn grass through their breath –– as well as the "health" of art institutions through their attendance.
