Calculating Carbon: three snapshots of environmental impact caused by La Biennale

Amy McDonnell, Monica Rivas Velasquez and Fernanda Albertoni respond to Neil Cummings’ brief “Calculate the magnitude of the carbon bubble caused by visitors to the Biennale. PS Carbon Tracker and Carbon footprint calculator

Methodology:

Using a Carbon Footprint calculator and an Energy Resources Calculator

Half hrs worth of Biennale – from asking visitors at the Arsenale for half an hour where they had traveled from and whether by plane, train or automobile!

PRESSROOM participants – by asking everyone present at the final Friday from where and how they traveled.

GB Pavilion – By finding out the amount of visitors to Jeremy Deller’s 2013 Pavilion, and calculating the impact if all of these visitors were traveling by plane from London, obviously the impact would be a lot more grave with visitors from all over the world.
