Images: Tools for a Warming Planet Collection, 2022
Tools for a Warming Planet is a collection of speculative and scientific field tools for environmental exploration in the Anthropocene. The project combines practices of scientific research and artistic intervention by compiling tools from various modes of investigation. As the climate becomes a more volatile and figured actor in our lives, our methods of ‘knowing’ the environment are changing. Observations in nature, mapping, community engagement, and data collection are changing roles, from exploring unknown or uncharted areas to establishing new metrics, representations, datasets, and relationships in otherwise ‘known’ territories.
