Emerging in a stream at Campus Albano at Stockholm University, Future Island is a living artwork by OOZE (Eva Pfannes och Sylvain Hartenberg) and Marjetica Potrč .
The artwork comprises of an island divided into two zones, one of which is sustainably heated to be five degrees Celsius warmer than the other. The changes that occur over time will demonstrate the impact of climate change on nature.
The work has been commissioned by Public Art Agency Sweden and is the result of a collaboration with Akademiska hus and Svenska Bostäder. Public Art Agency has also created a new art collection for Albano.
