Climate Crimes presented by Michela French at Illuminate

Tuesday, November 16

Join us in the dome for a screening of Climate Crimes and a discussion on the relationship between climate change and human migration, led by the film’s creator Michaela French

Climate Crimes explores the complex relationship between global air pollution, climate change and human migration. The large scale fulldome video installation investigates how anthropogenic aerosols and other atmospheric particles originating in the wealthy nations of the global north – Europe, USA, China, and others, impact global climate systems and contribute to the desertification and migration in the Sahel region of north Africa.
The spatial video content is designed to immerse the viewer in this cyclic story of cause and effect. The imagery shifts from microscopic to universal scales, incorporating the physical dome structure in the narrative movement across complex data sets, global perspectives and human stories

The immersive film is a collaboration with Dr Adrian Lahoud with Max Crow of NSC Creative, architect Kamil Dalkir, sound designer Mike Wyeld and technical partners GaiaNova.

About the artist: Michaela French is a UK based Australian artist, lecturer and researcher working with light and time-based media across a broad range of artistic and commercial contexts. She will discuss Climate Crimes and the relationship between climate change and human migration.

This artwork is one in a series of immersive experiences and events inspired by the work of Green Minds in Plymouth. We hope the works will stimulate conversation which will lead to the development of newly commissioned experiences, co-funded by Green Minds and which will be presented at the immersive dome at the Market Hall in Devonport.

This activity is part of the iMayflower project and has been supported by The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, who fund the Cultural Development Fund, which is administered by Arts Council England.
