Fieldwork: Climate Change & the South Island

In July 2016, Sara Dean and Beth Ferguson traveled to the city of Dunedin on the South Island of New Zealand, where they were hosted by the Otago Museum. Through community workshops, public events, and individual research, they explored connections between design and science using new media techniques and experimentation. Collaborating with designers, scientists, students and citizens, the exchange culminated in a group exhibition that explored New Zealand’s rapidly changing climate and its relationship with the Southern Ocean and Antarctica. Information about the project can also be found at climatekit.com.
