Edinburgh Center for Carbon Innovation

The Art, Space & Nature programme works in partnership with the Edinburgh Center for Carbon Innovation (ECCI) to produce an exhibition of work on the theme of carbon.

The exhibition sees ASN students working as individuals and small teams, to research and reflect on issues surrounding carbon emissions through their own artistic practice. The exhibition runs during the Edinburgh Science Festival, one of Europe’s largest such events.

Carbon Symphony
Team: Patrick Lydon, Nadia Dermatopoulou, Flavia Mattos Salvador, Stephanie Ghetta

Using sound and visual illumination, this installation takes per-capita carbon emissions statistics for 200 of the world’s countries, and maps them to our most personal form of carbon emission, the human breath.

Let’s talk carbon!
Team: Akshaya Lakshmi Narsimhan , Diandra Saginatari , Zhao Xie

The string installation is designed as a 3 dimensional graphic tool that maps out people’s emotional response towards carbon and climate change. Creating a dense network of data that webs across a glass box – one can choose to view the issue both from the ‘inside’ and the ‘outside’  – What would you choose?

Inhale: Exhale
Team: Sonia Ali and Allison Palenske

A set of works exploring the ‘macro’ role of ‘micro’ algae within the carbon cycle, through its power of carbon absorption. The combination of wall installation, projection, and carbon-neutral themed cocktails explores algae’s versatility and potential for impact.

All the shoes I have ever owned from birth until now – 31 years. I have no particular interest in shoes but when trying to remember them all, I realise that my own environmental impact regarding their manufacture is (necessarily?) considerable.
