Cloud Crash

For the world premiere of Cape Farewell’s annual Lovelock Art Commission at the Museum of Science and Industry, internationally acclaimed Paris-based artists HeHe – Helen Evans and Heiko Hansen – have taken inspiration from pioneering climate scientist James Lovelock and the ground-breaking science funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) to bring atmospheric science powerfully to life across the Museum site.

These new pieces depict micro-climates, pollution and artificially engineered clouds in provocative new contexts, blurring the boundaries between the natural and the man-made. The three pieces ask us to consider society’s role in environmental destabilisation, and prompt ways forward to a cleaner, healthier future. These artworks complement NERC’s Into The Blue campaign, a series of showcase events in the Northwest throughout October that celebrate the environmental science we live and breathe.

The exhibition includes three artworks – Airbag, a micro-climate; Burnout, a manufactured airspace and  Diamonds In The Sky, a sky of artificially engineered clouds.
