Time Out says

Montreal-based media art studio Iregular brings an interactive art installation to Navy Pier this winter, using gigantic projections to draw attention to climate change and the global impact of our individual actions. The projections take over surfaces on Fifth Third Bank Family Pavilion, near the fountain at Polk Bros Park, in Pier Park near the Centennial Wheel and on the South Dock near Billy Goat Tavern.

You won't just be watching the projections—the digital displays respond to movement and the light on your cellphone, creating shifting geometric patterns and causing new images to appear. Each projection corresponds to a different environmental aspect, including wildlife, waste and icebergs.

"Our Common Home" will run in tandem with all of the other attractions that Navy Pier has to offer, so you can visit the Light Up the Lake experience or ride the Centennial Wheel while you're there.
