the mermaids' song

 
 

 

2047

And I’m wetter than ever

Got my ties to mankind   On the brink of a server

 

i’m in court     with my case  

on the rise of sea level

 

dirty judge

He can’t even keep his see at eye level.

art + climate + science

 

 

 

 

An alternate vision of the future. Reimagined images of the sea and of Mermaids delivering a tell-

tale message in picture, word and song. An invitation to venture outside our comfort zone and

resist the status quo. To rediscover long forgotten truths about the air, the land and our water.

Calling on us to rise like an ocean and embrace the power of change. To live in symbiosis with the

planet and in so doing... save ourselves.

"Mermaids have populated the human imagination for millennia... might they help achieve what scientists have not?

  For Earth, it's the year of the beginning of the end of climate (as we know it).                 Scientists from every corner of Earth are indicating that this is the most pressing and important crisis facing mankind today.    ART + CLIMATE + SCIENCE - By using art to make the science more accessible, we trust more intelligent solutions will be adopted to reduce the rate at which our climate is changing.    It can feel daunting, as though anything we do will not make a dent in the enormity, but this is not the truth. As a human, as an inhabitant of this earth who has played a part in this environmental destruction, I feel a strong pull and even stronger responsibility to apologize to our ocean for what we have done.    The planet does not care if you are a mother, a doctor, a factory worker, a politician, the top climate change scientist, or even identify as a climate change skeptic. The climate is changing at an unprecedented rate, in part due to human activity.    The clock is ticking.
