Tackle Climate Change Through Art: A case study


This paper describes the creative process behind the creation of an audiovisual installation. Titled The Great Acceleration (2021), this installation is built upon scientific data simulating the retreat of the Ross Ice Shelf from 2015 to 2100. The dataset is the result of a computer simulation based on a scientific model provided by researchers from the Laboratory for Sciences of Climate and Environment (LSCE). The paper details the methodology used to offer a sensitive experience of climate change through the analysis of a large amount of data and the creation of generative audiovisual compositions. It describes the artistic approach and how the dataset related to the Ross Ice Shelf activity has been processed in order to create visual compositions and shape sounds. The paper also explains the relationship between these images and sounds and how they react to external outputs such as the presence and movement of visitors within an exhibition space.
