Switching Heads came to audiences at the Centre for Alternative Technology this week as part of a pre-Paris COP21 event. I introduced the project and explained how the piece will be shown in Paris for ArtCOP21. I also discussed the role of art and culture in mobilizing people in the face of climate change.
It was fantastic to see some many people at the event despite the stormy conditions in the transformed Llwyngwern Quarry. Many of the CAT and the surrounding communities are taking action during the lead up to and during COP21 and continue to inspire others to join.
On a personal level it has been such an exciting time to be the artist in residence at a centre that is so committed to making real differences in the war on climate change.
