An ambient 10-minute video loop is based on NASA’s iconic “Blue Marble” image. Tweets commenting on the ‘crazy’ weather being experienced in different parts of the world appear and disappear with the cumulative effect being rather troubling.

Climate Change Atlantic

Ian Mauro, Craig Norris, Ben Phillips and Marc Labelle
Spanning Atlantic Canada, this project explores the cartographies of knowledge regarding climate change, its impacts on coastal communities, and how people are responding through mitigation and adaptation.

This Clement World

This Clement World is a fiercely creative and charismatic tribute to our rapidly changing environment, as seen through the prism of Cynthia Hopkins’ deeply personal lens and wild cross-disciplinary style. Performed live with a 15-piece chorus and band, This Clement World blends outlandish fiction and original avant-folk songs with Hopkins’ own documentary footage from an Arctic expedition with Cape Farewell, infusing our global climate crisis with humour, poetics and urgency.
