Project Feature: Boston Buoy

No items found.

NuVu students are constantly applying their creative intuition to potential solutions for pressing global issues. Students Lalita B. and Ben J. used the final session of the winter term, Open Innovation, to create an idea that they hope draws much needed attention to a real, future problem they will likely be faced with.

Boston Buoys are interactive and educational installation art pieces. They are designed to teach passersby about rising sea levels in Boston, and how the coastline will be severely impacted. The news often presents stories about climate change and the disasters it causes, but these students felt it lacks a personal impact, and allows the viewer to disconnect, feeling like their particular communities and homes won't be affected.
