Counting One to Four: Nature morte
synthesises the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) findings revealing predicted mass species extinctions in a 7-minute video.
The work moves beyond a simplistic representation of ‘damaged nature’ to a multifaceted analysis of cause and effect with projections of up to 52% of all terrestrial mammals, reptiles, marine species, amphibians and insects committed to extinction by 2100.
The work also visually references the 20 Earth Summits that have occurred across the globe by date and location.

will feature a screening of PLANETARY
, a cinematic Experience of Space and the World, with remarks by special guests: Astronaut Ron Garan
, Director, Guy Reid
