[Dose of Design Activism] Nine Planets Wanted!

View of props and displays. Source of the installation’s information was the United Nations Development Programme’s Human Development Report 2007/2008

Design firm Zago created an installation that appeared in the United Nations Lobby. Called Nine Planets Wanted!, visitors were encouraged to interact with data about emissions of carbon dioxide in order to “take measure of the inverse relationship between responsibility for climate change and vulnerability to its impact.”

Resembling the form of a carbon dioxide atom, twelve beanbags were situated throughout the installation

Thanks to Jenna Robles, Project Manager at Zago, for the pictures.
