Art connects us to the problem in a felt way…

1.5 Degrees

The whirlwind of data and opinion surrounding climate change can be overwhelming; how do we form something meaningful and informative out of all of the figures, news, opinions and anxiety surrounding this topic?

Art connects us to the problem in a felt way, it encourages engagement, deep thinking, problem-solving and questioning.

The title of this exhibition (1.5 Degrees) comes from the challenge of the global community to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees (above pre-industrial levels). It is about the science of climate change, communicated in diverse and intriguing ways.

Art and Science pose questions, prompt investigation and create opportunities for further exploration. They can devastate and unite yet can share the same frame and respond to the same plight. Although rarely considered to be aligned with one another, their union provides a certain vulnerability yet ultimately a perceived venerability.

Making use of hands on demonstrations, this presentation considers how science and art can “infiltrate” each other to demonstrate the “I have always been here” reality.
