With this project, I am aiming to develop and deliver two portable, outdoor or indoor exhibitions communicating a sense of the nature of the Earth System and the Human System to lay audiences.
Exhibitions will be staged by appointment, and, more spontaneously, outdoors, in Bath and the West of England, to begin with, weather and public health conditions permitting. Contact me for further information.
Details of each exhibition are given below.
THE EARTH SYSTEM AND HOW IT WORKS
This exhibition presents the Earth System and its basic architecture and workings. A selection of images and objects is used, each with commentary, to give a sense of the major Earth System reservoirs, contents, and processes.
Materials comprise 16 lightweight easels, 16 colour satellite, aerial and on-the-ground mounted photographs*, and accompanying notices, a makeshift plinth and customised globe indicating some major biomes. These are best arranged in a circle around or behind the plinth and globe, so as to reinforce the sense of cyclical processes for the audience.
