Musician and artist Beatie Wolfe announces London exhibition of environmental CO2 artworkFrom green to red

On June 1, the London Design Biennale at Somerset House exhibits the CO2 environmental artwork (built using 800,000 years of our planet’s climate data) by a pioneering British artist. This coincides with World Environment Day on Saturday June 5thand.

Earlier this month, artist Beatie Wolfe (interview with John Robb here) shared a glimpse of his climate artwork during his speech at the premiere Nobel prize Mountain peak (directly following Sir David Attenborough and Al Gore on stage) devoted to the climate crisis and the future of our planet.

Previous exhibitions of the ‘weird and visionary musician’ include an acclaimed solo exhibition of her ‘world premiere’ album designs at the V&A Museum, a Barbican documentary on his work, a Space broadcast via the Horn antenna of the Big Bang, and an exhibition in progress (in collaboration with Mark Mothersbaugh of DEVO) to Rauschenberg Gallery in the USA.

At the forefront of pioneering new music formats that bridge the physical and digital, Beatie Wolfe is a UN Women role model for innovation and was named by Wired as one of “22 People Changing the World”. His past works include: a 3D theater for the palm of your hand; a portable record sleeve – cut by Bowie/Hendrix’s tailor from woven fabric with Wolfe’s music – and an “anti-stream” of the quietest room in the world (i.e. the first stream 360 AR live to the world). Wolfe is also the co-founder of an in-depth research project on the power of music for people with dementia that she recently shared at TEDMED.

London Design Biennale at Somerset House runs from June 1-27. The official website for the artwork is: www.fromgreentored.com
