Painting Climate Change



A post shared by Elizabeth Briel (@ebrielart) on

As a meteorologist told me devastating stories of climate change and showed me the graphs to prove it, I followed the shape of the data and to me these shapes looked like landscapes. They haunted me.

So I began painting Icescapes, silhouettes of rocky forms from graphs documenting climate change. This section compares the world's 2 biggest polluters' (US – right & China – left) use of coal over the past century. Once we added other fuel sources like natural gas, etc the US section roughly equaled China's.

I've begun a collaboration with programmers and a music producer to create algorithmic music from the data, for a sonification and visualization of climate change
