Earth Fortunes is an augmented reality (AR) installation developed collaboratively by artists and engineers, and created as part of the multi-year project, Speculative Energy Futures. The installation generates energy fortunes based on the computer model GCAM: the Global Change Analysis Model and serves scenarios responsive to the Shared Socioeconomic Pathways or SSPs. Users shuffle and deal with beautifully-illustrated fortune-telling cards and access the AR via a QR code. The large triptych, itself a form of data visualization of the engineering data, launches the AR fortune-telling experience encouraging questions around sustainability, equity, social justice and the kind of futures we want or can imagine.
