As part of the VDF collaboration with Beatie Wolfe, the singer-songwriter has shared this exclusive preview of From Green to Red, a forthcoming interactive environmental protest installation.
Created for this year’s London Design Biennale, the project sets to music NASA data showing how atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide have increased over the past 800,000 years.
For VDF, Wolfe has prepared a special movie preview of the installation. This features a digital timeline that visualises the dramatic increase in CO2 in the atmosphere over the preceding 8,000 centuries, “reimagining both the music-video format and protest song,” according to Wolfe.
“It’s part music video, part protest song and entirely a statement of our time,” said Wolfe.
The title of the project comes from Wolfe’s track From Green To Red, which explores climate-change denial and which Wolfe wrote after seeing the 2006 climate-change documentary An Inconvenient Truth.
“We don’t want to hear that the problem is us,” Wolfe sings in the track. “So we live like we want in our own universe.”
From Green To Red has been produced in collaboration with visual-effects studio The Mill and will premiere at the 2020 London Design Biennale, which is due to take place at Somerset House in London from 8 to 27 September 2020 and is directed this year by theatre designer Es Devlin.
