ORBACLES is a triad of spherical environments that connect directly with visitors about climate change through the story of birds and the language of our senses. The orbs act as speculative infrastructure for bird populations in Minnesota from the present till 2080. They communicate the recorded and anticipated shift of birds due to species loss and migration related to climate effects, and the related transformation of terrestrial and aquatic environments.
