"CO2 Cubes: United Nations Project to Visualize a Ton of Change"
On December 1st, the UN will launch the "CO2 Cube", with a presentation from visionary digital media art designer, Travis Threlkel.
NEW YORK, NY.- How big is 1 metric ton of carbon dioxide (CO2)? Join us for the premiere of the "CO2 Cube" to visualize it. Measured and stored at standard atmospheric pressure, CO2 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, and in the United States, every two weeks.

On December 1st, the UN will launch the "CO2 Cube", with a presentation from visionary digital media art designer, Travis Threlkel, Founder and Creative Director of Obscura Digital, who invented a new media technology system specifically designed for this art exhibit. See for the first time, the climate change art projection before the unveiling of the "CO2 Cube" in Copenhagen, and learn how Google and YouTube are powering the real-time portal.

Project artist Alfio Bonanno, a pioneer of the site-specific nature installation, and architect Christophe Cornubert, a recipient of the Reitveld Architecture Prize, are on the ground in Copenhagen commencing the construction of this sustainably designed art cube on the waters of St. Jørgens Lake, an architectural feat. The "CO2 Cube" conceptualizers and technologists stop in New York on their way to Copenhagen as the countdown begins to complete the installation for the public unveiling at COP15, in honor of the historic UN Climate Change Conference.

Find out about the "Making of the CO2 CUBES: Visualize a Tonne of Change" exhibit from Mia Hanak, Executive Director of Millennium ART, a global partner for the Arts of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, and and from the United Nations Department of Public Information, addressing the importance of utilizing art to encourage audiences to act on climate change solutions.
