Kidderminster College MAS Lab joins the Wyre Forest Green Alliance Art 4 Planet Earth in presenting an exhibition to increase awareness of our ecological problems with climate change challenges.
Head Curator at MAS Lab, Kevyn Gammond says:
“Throughout the week we aim to inspire and invite you to join us daily with live performances, alongside the display of visual arts, deal with the climate future myriad issues, exemplified by the work of KC staff, students and an array of artist speakers from the community. All will provide an overview on climate emergency and how our everyday activities shape our future. Also, at this time, addressing the COP 26 climate change conference taking place in Glasgow.”
The first thing you will likely notice when entering KC is a large “GROWBOT” which flashes warning messages and has the first UK built-in Climate Clock put together for KC “GROWBOT” by the Greta Thurnberg Climate research Institute. The “GROWBOT” has inspired students and staff create a Cosmic Garden floral sculptures that transform the colours, patterns and life-cycles of our plants and flowers to remind us to keep adapting to the ‘new normal’.
MAS Lab are attempting to build a new narrative about climate change with the support, understanding and participation of the individual citizens that make up our communities.
