2º different: ARTiculation of change

We are ‘far too mammalian’ to really understand the effect of a 2˚ increase in environmental temperature. We don’t innately ‘get it’, and thus are incapable of empathy with the vast majority of organisms on this planet that are ectotherms (not warm-blooded). Clear delivery of facts will never be enough to inspire engagement with climate change; emotional engagement is the answer but requires complex sensory immersion in another organism’s worlds. -Maybe through sensory representation via a creative art-science approach, e.g. visual narratives formed by the organisms themselves. SEE HERE FOR EXAMPLES FROM THIS ONGOING PROJECT.
