MUSEUM NIGHT: Workshop and installation by @Change
An interactive installation about climate change by the Portuguese-Icelandic arts collective @Change. Alongside the installation there will be workshops and educative information that addresses climate change in creative and diverse ways.
The work relates directly to the effects of global climate change on local nature and consists of mini-glazier that melts unless the audience take an active part in it's protection. Emphasis will be placed on creative participation in specially designed "Awareness Zone" with sensors that will activate the melting process if no visitors are in the awareness zone.
Climate is defined as the "average weather" in a place. It includes patterns of temperature, precipitation (rain or snow), humidity, wind and seasons. Climate patterns play a fundamental role in shaping natural ecosystems, and the human economies and cultures that depend on them. Global climate change is the number one threat to mankind today.
@Change art collective are: César Rodrigues, Curver Thoroddsen, Raquel Correia and Sigríður Liv Ellingsen.
