L'Albero is a sculpture that lives in a neighborhood environment. It displays real time environmental data of its environment. If this data is easily accessible, it becomes easier for people to interpret and relate back into their everyday lives. The tree is receiving readings from carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, humidity and temperature sensors in the neighborhood as well as sea-level readings.
