Climate Change & Sustainability
Secrets of the Sun (S.O.S.) Site Specific Solar Spectrum Environmental Art
S.O.S. addresses the beauty and dangers of Sunlight: the beauty of the rainbow and the dangers of global warming and mass species extinction. These immersive installations use the emotional impact of solar spectrum light, and environmental sound installations to wake people up about climate change, sustainability and mass species extinction. In these participatory installations, Sunlight is the medium, the subject matter and the energy source for the art. S.O.S. employs new psychological tools to promote personal and social adaptation to climate change.
