The individual drawings are hung in a row through the length of the gallery, similar to a disected tree trunk, where each individual drawing depicts a ring represents the changing Co2 levels over the last 52 years.
Timestreams is a joint research and development project between the RCUK’s Horizon Digital Economy Research Hub, University of Nottingham, and Active Ingredient. It explores the relationships between energy and climate […]
