“Augmented reality art exhibit shows how people are harming corals”

“Artist Tamiko Thiel says she wants to get people thinking about how their actions affect the ocean – not only through pollution but global warming, which causes harmful coral bleaching. So the virtual corals change color throughout the day. Visitors who come in the morning see vivid colors. Thiel: “Over the course of the day, as more and more people view it, we bleach the colors more and more.” Thiel says this kind of interactive art provides an entry point for learning about threats to our oceans.”
