CO2 Cubes: Copenhagen 2009

Posted by Ian on Nov 30, 2009 in blog | No Comments

One of the many exciting projects currently being put together for Copenhagen 2009… Struggling to give physical presence to the environmental carbon emissions, friends at Millenium Art have partnered up with countless supporters to invade the civic spaces of Copenhagen with their CO2 Cubes. Occupying the physical space that 1 tonne of carbon would occupy, artists will be presenting visualisations and representations of ‘what 1 tonne of carbon looks like’.
It’s an intriguing, playful and likely beautiful concept for public art. Though, I might question whether raw representation is a successful means of creating social behavioral change and whether the cubes may just simply be experienced as aesthetic window dressing for the Copenhagen summit.
