An Ecological Oracle is an installation that creates a simulated environment to explore social dynamics surrounding a critical tipping point of climate change—the thawing of permafrost. The work engages participants through real-time data that exposes how inputs in and out of their control affect permafrost melt. The work seeks to expose underlying tensions between the individual and the collective, raising questions around how ideology may shape perception of this potential climate event.
