Global warming installation by Sunand Prasad

During the voyage I am working on two projects. The first is to put up in a suitable and sheltered spot further north, four balloons such that a volume of 540 m3 is delineated between their tether lines: the volume of one tonne of CO2; the average emission per person per month in the UK. Within a few years we must make that same amount last 6 month.

    A very elegant example of the fusion of science and art

    If you’re in London next Friday (6 Feb 2009, 5.30–9.30pm) a group of Chelsea College of Art & Design students are going to respond to and recreate this work. “Greenhouse Gas by Sunand Prasad will be presented at the Parade Ground, Chelsea College of Art & Design to coincide with Cape Farewell’s Late at Tate event”.
