Every One, Every Day [kuuki.com.au], designed by media production collective Kuuki, is a media architecture installation measuring 27 cubic meters that reflects the near real-time price and demand of energy in New South Wales, Australia.

The cube was built out of recycled polyethylene, a material derived from used milk bottles. Its 27 cubic meters represents approximately 1 day of CO2 that is typically emitted in Australia. At night, the cube emits different colors: warm orange hues represent peak demand, while blue hues convey lower demands. Sudden spikes in the price trigger white flashes.
