5 Climate Change Art Projects
It’s annoying: all those people denying climate change.
It’s dangerous: all those people who know what’s going on, but don’t do anything about it.
Stopping climate change isn’t saving the world, it’s saving ourselves. Whoever doesn’t believe it will be able to ask their local climate refugee pretty soon. So here are 5 creative climate change art projects to open some eyes and motivate us to take action:
Waiting for Climate Change (Isaac Cordal)
Small sculptures for big issues: Spanish artist Isaac Cordal takes on climate change in one of his amazing projects. The tiny people stand around passively, doing nothing and waiting to drown in their own apathy and the rising sea they ignored for too long. Basically, it’s a mirror of our present society.
But, Cordal said the size of his works highlights that it’s not all lost: “It refers to this collective inertia that leads us to think that our small actions cannot change anything. But I believe that every small act can contribute to a big change. Many small changes can bring back social attitudes that manipulate the global inertia and turn it into something more positive.”
Climate Change Hourglass (Blu)
This is the best evidence that a picture is worth a thousand words. No amount of explaining could sum up the climate change threat better than this huge mural by street artist Blu in Berlin.
