A cultural exploration of climate change

Nature Climate Change

February 13, 2012

A pioneering project that was set up to bridge a perceived communication gap between the science of climate change and the deep societal changes required to avoid dangerous impacts is explained by its creator in Nature Climate Change this week. In 2001, British artist David Buckland founded the Cape Farewell project, which he feels attempts to address one of the most pressing social issues of our time. Cape Farewell\\\'s expeditions to the Arctic, Andes and Amazon, in which artists, writers and film-makers travel aboard a research vessel with scientists, have produced exhibitions, books and films that deliver a cultural response to climate change. In a News Feature published this week Buckland explains his approach. The article is accompanied by original photographs and an exclusive poem by the British poet Nick Drake.
