'Breathe' installation at Elma Turner Library

If you are passing the Elma Turner Library in Nelson, you’ll notice an installation of illuminated fish in the windows facing onto the Maitai Pathway. This is Breathe – an interactive installation developed through the Te Wairepo/York Stream project to illustrate the impact of stream water temperatures on aquatic life. 
The fish in the installation are digitally connected to sensors in Te Wairepo/York Stream and change colour when the stream warms up or cools down. When stream water heats up, it becomes de-oxygenated and fish and other aquatic creatures have trouble breathing. The colours of the fish correspond to the conditions in the stream – red lights show when the temperature is too hot for our fish to breathe easily.

This installation is accompanied by a programme of public talks by the team who helped the students make the work and access the data

Breathe will be on display at the Library until 29 March 2018.
