‘Coral City Camera’ @ Design Miami 2019

For Design Miami 2019/, we debuted a preview of the ‘Coral City Camera’, a 360° live stream underwater camera located at our collaborative research site with NOAA/ University of Miami’s ACCRETE Lab. The CCC aims to supplement our urban coral research with real-time scientific data and offer a source of natural wonderment to the public, with the live stream officially going live in February 2020. The output of the camera will be broadcast into public schools across Florida through a partnership with the Everglades Foundation. This initiative will reach over 100,000 students, teaching observers to work as citizen scientists with a curriculum that integrates the CCC live stream across 21 school districts. The implementation and associated outreach of the ‘Coral City Camera’ are made possible with the support of Bas Fisher Invitational & the Bridge Initiative under National Endowment for the Arts & Knight Foundation grants.
