ClimateScape is a kinetic art installation using sound and movement.
Climate change is happening. Some think we've already gone too far.
We need to make a concentrated effort to about face immediately. A dramatic shift on current climate policy and swift action is no longer an option, it is mandatory. The time is now and it may be running out, if it hasn't already.
ClimateScape is about bringing awareness to the human effect and how we are affecting climate change. The four soundscape sculptures represent 4 potential climate change scenarios known as Representative Concentration Pathways, or RCPs.
They are scenario models for forecasters to use when modeling certain climate related metrics.
As the sculptures are approached they engage with the viewer and create a sometimes uneasy soundscape representing one of these scenarios. Illustrating the human effect and how we are influencing these changes.
The sculptures also have a representative material, representing a current and / or future sector that is or will be playing a role in climate change.
We are the human effect and we cause the ClimateScape.
It is up to us to right the ship. We as artists must bring continued awareness. We as humans must act.
