La fonte des glaciers (2010)

In line with Laboratoire climatique (2004-2009) and presented as part of the exhibition “Maquette et autres dispositifs climatiques” (AxeNéo7, 2010), this installation stages the melting of the ice caps and consequent rising seas. With a device involving two basins, one of which may be made to rise above the landscape (situated in the foreground), the work proposes the development of an ecological disaster that visitors witness through the interaction of the installation’s various elements and the artifices of a technical, yet light-hearted simulation.
