Climate Capsule / EcoPrint
The debut edition of the installation ‘Climate Capsule’ will be presented at the exhibition art+science: ‘Ecoprint’, from 22 to 31 July at the Štrand Pavilion, within The Danube Sea programme arch.
The climate capsule is a mobile and modular installation conceived as an intense experience that provides visitors with a layered perspective on climate change through scientific facts, artistic interventions, and multimedia content.
The presented content creates a space for dialogue between scientists, artists, and citizens on the topic of future scenarios of climate change. With a view of the dystopian scene in the year 2057, a narrative was created that initiates the subjective experience of the announced future and the readiness to face the consequences of climate change. This scientific-artistic platform is a direct call to climate action by all citizens, and a reminder to us all about the uniqueness of the position each of us has and the actions we can take.
The climate capsule was conceived as an experimental concept that will be continuously re-examined through reflective practice, changing its form, contents, and programme until 2030. It is aimed at monitoring and critically considering the implementation of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, as a global and generally accepted mechanism on the way to a sustainable and the only possible future.
The capsule will be installed in ten countries of Southeast Europe by 2026, as part of the Climateeurope2 project.
