Climate extremes, disrupted habitats, and sea level rise, like the tip of an iceberg, are the most apparent elements of a much bigger concern. Climate change, linked to an increase in greenhouse gasses, encompasses these and many other environmental factors that, in turn have social, political, and economic consequences. Through diverse media including photography, digital prints, sculpture, video and sound, the work of eleven BC-based artists explore climate change from different perspectives.
