Overview

Climate Pulse is an environmental light sculpture that responds to changes in temperature and humidity. Powered by 2400 programmed LED lights, the sculpture emits a glow of color based on ambient temperature. At high humidity levels, the lights sparkle to warn of impending rain. The artwork is sited in Houston’s Emancipation Park through winter of 2018. Climate Pulse was designed as a parametric sculpture with responsive lighting integrated into the structure of 88 ribs. The ribs are joined together to span 12 feet.
