NRG NRG by Chris Joseph,

It's 2010 and you have been appointed to lead the new World Energy Directorate, with the power to control international spending and research on energy sources and production. Your decisions will influence the life of billions of humans, countless species and the Earth as a whole. How will your choices change all our lives during the planet's next forty years of industrial development?

NRG Part environmental game, part multimedia artwork, NRG (short for En-er-gy) is a self-sustaining, people-powered installation. No previous knowledge about energy issues is assumed or required, but NRG is intended to stimulate thought and discussion about energy consumption, its links to global warming and the need for the development of lifestyle alternatives.

NRG was created by Chris Joseph as part of the first Digital Writer in Residence position at the Institute of Creative Technologies (IOCT), De Montfort University, Leicester, UK.
