The following works were included in the exhibition, which is set to run until 25 April 2014.
24 x NO2
Christina Gråberg Røsholt
Giving a size and shape to the hourly average air pollution in Edinburgh measured at St. John’s Road. Monthly timeline for the past two years, 2012-2013, showing the change in air quality.
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-mitigation 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.
A painting made with great anger against the production of carbon.
Javier Vidal Aguilera
Digital photographs of three ephemeral installations in Orkney, Glen Nevis and Edinburgh.
Let’s Talk Carbon!
Zhao Xie, Diandra Saginatari, Akshaya Lakshmi Narsimhan
The string installation is designed as a 3 dimensional graphic tool that maps out people’s emotional response towards carbon and climate change.
Patrick Lydon, Stephanie Ghetta, Nadia Dermatopoulou, Flavia Salvador
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.
Surrounded by mist
This is a mixed media piece. Where I relate the landscape with the carbon itself.
