Environmental awareness fosters a sense of connection to the natural world. Promotes sustainable development and encourages conservation of irreplaceable natural resources and vulnerable plant and animal species. Environmental awareness serves as a tool in order to help people around the world understand the economic, aesthetic and biological importance of preserving resources and reducing or eliminating the harmful impacts of man-made alterations.
Sentinel is a conceptual water quality monitoring device. As an installation, sentinel uses light as information in order to expose invisible water quality degradation by measuring water quality parameters. An interactive LED light system is embedded in the device and glows white when all parameters are in acceptable levels for the aquatic/non aquatic life and turns darker when the aquatic environment is degraded. Sentinel aims to raise environmental awareness as an installation within the urban environment where patterns of industrialisation place stress on the environment.
