With conversations around climate change often being highly pessimistic, and new scientific data leading to despair and defeatism. There is an urgent need for symbols of repair and healing to replace these familiar narratives, which can stand in the way of meaningful climate action. This rotating beam installation sits atop a bed of sand, the inscripes patterns captured from global climate datasets – carbon emissions, tweets on climate change and meteorological data. This project was inspired, in part, by the ambitions and efforts of Project Vesta, a non-profit working to further the olivine science of Coastal Enhanced Weathering (CEW) as a carbon capture technology to help mitigate climate change. It is hoped that the installation can be an artistic advocate for the carbon capture technology of olivine, highlighting this important scientific research to a broader audience.
