Flag Calumet supports and accelerates local habitat restoration in an area of Illinois and Indiana in two parts: an installation to facilitate interactions between residents and their surrounding environment and an assembling service that entices residents and visitors to participate in restoration efforts.
The installation has modular components that can be assembled and customized in various forms, and a technical brain with sensors and other computational capabilities to support environmental data collection and communication.
Calumet Flag was funded by the Kresge Foundation and was part of “The Future of Brownfields” research project, a three-year partnership between ID and the Calumet Collaborative, with the support and active collaboration of the Keller Science Action Center, located at Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History.
