UNICEF & GOOGLE / The Assembly of Youth
Google Creative Lab commissioned the studio to create ‘Assembly of Youth’, a temporary, sculptural installation at the hall of the UN Assembly in New York. A project that signified a partnership between Google, UNICEF and 7: The David Beckham UNICEF Fund.
The installation comprises of 47 free-standing figurative wooden sculptures, each containing an individual LED screen and a speaker, arranged in a semi-circle surrounding a central unit to create an immersive yet simple environment in which the data can be absorbed.
The installation aggregates data generated by UNICEF’s platform UReport, a free, SMS- based system that enables young people to speak out on what’s happening in communities across their country, and work together with other community leaders and policymakers for positive change, bolstered with additional data sources from Google.
