Orbital Bloom

Orbital Bloom transforms buildings' energy data into virtual gardens that express and incentivise low carbon buildings and lifestyles

The initiative's goal is to use data-driven artwork to enable the transformation of buildings into sustainable ecosystems. These smart artworks repurpose building management data, including electricity, water, and gas. Its approach is to create digital gardens that bloom and thrive as buildings green.

The product will combine data reporting with the creativity of digital arts, algorithmic tracking, and AI to incentivise and express buildings’ energy management data as well as incentivise low-carbon lifestyles.

The founders Dr. Ameera Kawash and Shira Wachsmann began this project as PhD students at the School of Arts and Humanities at the RCA. They are receiving informal support from InnovationRCA.

Orbital Bloom, is recipient of an Honourable Mention in the Terra Carta Design Lab competition, launched by King Charles III, RCA Chancellor, Jonny Ive and the Sustainable Markets Initiative, at the RCA.
