Project Pressure

Visualizing climate change.

Our exhibition MELTDOWN visualizing climate change at the Natural History Museum, Vienna, is now officially open. We couldn’t think of a better place to launch Project Pressure’s travelling exhibition with artworks by Corey Arnold, Michael Benson, Broomberg & Chanarin, Edward Burtynsky, Scott Conarroe, Peter Funch, Noémi Goudal, Adam Hinton, Richard Mosse, Simon Norfolk, Norfolk + Thymann, Christopher Parsons, Toby Smith and Klaus Thymann. - #climateactionnow #projectpressure #meltdown #art #artexhibition #climatecrisis

⁣On the Furka Pass in Southern Switzerland, there is a small shop that carves an ice grotto into the nearby Rhône glacier and charges tourists to enter inside the blue ice. They have invested heavily in a thermal blanket to keep the ice grotto intact. However, after a few harsh winters on the mountain, the blanket is starting to disintegrate making it look like as if the glacier has been wrapped in a death cloak, preparing for the inevitability of its own disappearance.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Drop by Gallery Luisotti if you are in Santa Monica, California to see Shroud by @simonnorfolkstudio and @klausthymann.

Across the world, glacier volumes are projected to decline up to 90 percent this century from decreased snowfall, increased snowline elevations and longer melt seasons. - Behind the scenes image from our expedition with @noemiegoudal in 2016. Goudal will be showing three works from this commission at the upcoming exhibition @nhmwien opening 4th of June. - #noemigoudal #projectpressure #climateactionnow #climatechange

⁣A new report from the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) finds that around 1 million animal and plant species are now threatened with extinction, many within decades, more than ever before in human history. ⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⁣To increase the policy-relevance of the Report, the assessment’s authors have ranked, for the first time at this scale and based on a thorough analysis of the available evidence, the five direct drivers of change in nature with the largest relative global impacts so far. These culprits are, in descending order: (1) changes in land and sea use; (2) direct exploitation of organisms; (3) climate change; (4) pollution and (5) invasive alien species. ⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⁣Since 1980, greenhouse gas emissions have doubled, raising average global temperatures by at least 0.7 degrees Celsius – with climate change already impacting nature from the level of ecosystems to that of genetics – impacts expected to increase over the coming decades, in some cases surpassing the impact of land and sea use change and other drivers. ⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⁣ “The Report also tells us that it is not too late to make a difference, but only if we start now at every level from local to global,” he said. “Through ‘transformative change’, nature can still be conserved, restored and used sustainably – this is also key to meeting most other global goals. By transformative change, we mean a fundamental, system-wide reorganization across technological, economic and social factors, including paradigms, goals and values.” ⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⁣Image Outsider, 2013 by Corey Arnold @arni_coraldo ⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⁣#projectpressure #climatechange #climateactionnow #extinctionrebellion #coreyarnold

⁣The total area of the glacier cover in Hornsund Fjord where Corey Arnold went on an expedition with Project Pressure in year 2013 diminished by approximately 172 km2 from 1899–2010. The average glacier area retreat increased from a mean of 1.6 square kilometers per year to 3 square kilometers per year since 2000 according to a report from the same year. Large glacier systems with low slopes terminating in deeper waters are retreating faster than small steep glaciers terminating in shallower water. For this and several other reasons, glaciers of this particular area can be considered as more sensitive to climate than glaciers of other regions of the Svalbard archipelago.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Source: https://www.ice2sea.eu/wp-content/uploads/sites/27/2011/08/064_popore-2013-00245.pdf⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Image: Hansbreen Light, Svalbard, 2013, by Corey Arnold ( @arni_coraldo )⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣#climatechange #coreyarnold #wedonthavetime #climateactionnow #projectpressure

Glacial retreat causes changes over years or decades. Vanishing glaciers can cause rapid floods and debris flows, alter rivers and eco systems. Globally, vanishing glaciers will mean less water for animals, crops and people. - Image by @klausthymann - #climateactionnow #projectpressure #glacialmelt #climatechange #klausthymann

Glacier mass loss in Greenland has increased sixfold since the 1980s according to a study published yesterday in PNAS. The mass balance started to deviate from its natural range of variability in the 1980s. Greenland has raised sea level by 13.7 mm since 1972, half during the last 8 years. Scientists have reconstructed the mass balance of the Greenland Ice Sheet for the past 46 years by comparing glacier ice discharge into the ocean with interior accumulation of snowfall from regional atmospheric climate models over 260 drainage basins. - Image by @klausthymann - #climatechange #glaciermelt #projectpressure #klausthymann #greenland #landscapephotography

The aim of Project Pressure is to visualize climate change, using art as a positive touch point to inspire engagement and create behavioural change. The posters relate to vanishing glaciers to demonstrate the impact of climate change. Unlike wildfires, flooding and other weather events, glacier mass loss can be directly attributed to global climate change, and as such they are key indicators. The images by Edward Burtynsky, Simon Norfolk, Corey Arnold and Klaus Thymann are overlaid with surprising facts, providing an informative and unexpected journey for the viewer. - #wedonthavetime #projectpressure #climatechange #simonnorfolk
