Climate scientists and artists take hold of the exhibition,
inviting the public to take another look…
an immersive installation unfolds and we hear, touch, smell and taste the effects of climate change through a labyrinth of stories, images and objects
This event is the centrepiece of the Manchester Climate Change Leaders program – a suite of events funded by the EPSRC Impact Accelerator Account that has enabled the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, Manchester Museum, and Manchester Climate Change Agency to collaborate in new and innovative ways.
As Manchester develops its strategy to become zero carbon by 2050, Climate Change Synaesthesia is part of this year’s Manchester Climate Lab programme to find exciting new ways to engage and inspire people to take action on climate change.
For the first time, artists Rachel Parry and Rebecca Cunningham work intimately with climate scientists, museum curators and policy makers, aiming to create a space where the noise of climate change data can take pause…we know we have so much to do… ‘We can’t change the past…but we can change the future’… In the act of performance and art, reality may be momentarily suspended, offering a space of pause, an opportunity for personal meta-physical transformation….Living data…enlivened by the body…we imaged out potential futures…dystopias..utopias…?
What will our zero carbon future look like?
