Have you ever…? Hug@ree and engage into a playful symbiotic relationship with nature at 10/10/10 Global Work Party | 350.org + Greenpeace

We are getting to work on the climate crisis with task analysis and usability tests towards RTiVISS most recent experience, the interactive installation Hug@ree.

Through an artistic approach in an experimental investigation, we are actively reflecting on the questions: how can we propose constructive approaches to the destructive dynamics of fire that aggravate climate change? Can art foster awareness and respect for nature?
