Graphic representing Data Lanterns

Data Lanterns
MIT Media Lab

illuminating local water quality through data performances for collective action

During the Chemicals in the Creek Open Water Data installation, researchers and community members floated data lanterns onto the Chelsea River in Massachusetts to create a physical representation of Clean Water Act violations by local oil storage facilities. This project is a collaboration between the MIT Media Lab (Laura Perovich), Northeastern University (Sara Wylie), and GreenRoots (Roseann Bongiovanni and ECO).
