AKQA Presents EarthSpeakr

EarthSpeakr is an artwork started by Olafur Eliasson, giving a voice to both kids and the planet, inviting today’s decision-makers and global leaders to listen. The work enables kids to personify objects and leave messages in the world using their facial expression via the free app. Adults can view the messages in AR, as well as place collections anywhere in the world. The result is an endearing Pixar-ification of Mother Earth in dire straits. As Elliason describes the app, “It’s about giving the planet a voice through the people who are going to inherit it".

First aired: Tuesday 6th October
