The AlloSphere is a three-story metal sphere in an echo-free chamber, used to project dazzling computer-generated imagery and sounds. As an interactive multi-user instrument, it allows scientists, artists, and other researchers to be immersed in information that traverses scale, from the atomic to the galactic–a conversation of quantum consciousness.  In the world of climate, it allows the visualization of complex data, making new understanding and discoveries possible.

Workshop: Good Energy's Climate Lens
One key in creating momentum in the climate conversation is the “stories” we tell about it. Join screenwriter and playwright Rae Binstock and transdisciplinary artist and Fulbright Scholar Jes Vesconte in Good Energy's Climate Lens Workshops, which allow writers (and everyone else!) to start seeing any modern story through a Climate Lens. In a one-hour workshop, you can investigate how climate impacts characters’ emotions and actions, and review case studies of existing climate appearances in TV and film. You'll also get to practice applying the Climate Lens, ranging from modeling solutions, to brief mentions, to climate-driven characters and plots, exploring the rich array of human emotions (beyond despair!) that climate change can evoke. These workshops will be held twice daily on weekends.
