The Creators Project from New York has profiled our recent work.  The Creators Project is a global celebration of creativity, arts and technology. Launched in 2009 with Intel as founding partner, the platform features the works of “visionary artists across multiple disciplines who are using technology to push the boundaries of creative expression”.

Beckett Mufson, the associate editor was impressed with our “man-meets-nature images” and profiled our art practice featuring works from recent exhibitions in Australia, China and Europe.Rain-Forest-Guardian

 

A new beginning

January 5, 2016

COP21 The Paris Climate Summit agreement is a world first.

187 countries committing to aim for a reduction in their carbon emissions that hold global warming at no more than 1.5 degrees above pre industrial levels. This represents a watershed decision towards solving the climate crisis. However their total pledges will barely hold temperatures below 3 degrees of warming, which climate scientists agree will be catastrophic.

So this is where the really hard work begins. It signals the end of business as usual for the energy industries. Future investment will need to be compatible with a zero carbon world.

We were pleased to make our creative contribution towards the shift to a low carbon circular economy in line with nature, with images and the story of our 20 year art practice recognised in issue No.1 of Open Resource magazine. The magazine features innovative approaches to the resource revolution and circular economy that are so urgently needed by all nations.

We are hopeful that 2016 will mark a turning point in history when the world community recognises and acts upon its obligations towards protecting all future life.
