To celebrate the Vernal Equinox, the first day of spring when the earthâ€™s 24 hours are split evenly between light and dark, we shared a wonderful find from Brazilian-Italian-currently-based-in-LondonÂ Paulo Goldstein, a self-described â€œdesigner/maker/artistâ€ according to his website.Â Incredibly talented and original, we would like to add.
So, brew yourself your favorite fair-trade beverage, sit back and let this six-minute videoÂ brighten your day. Â It is a â€œjoyful celebration of repaired objects, promoting a different narrative to scarcity by exploring and expanding the potential left behind by the anomalies of our consumer culture.â€
Our favorite quote from the video: Â â€Scarcity is a springboard to creativity.â€
We are sure that youâ€™ll never look at discarded rubbish in the same way again!
Thanks to Gristâ€™s Holly Richmond for the lead. Â Follow Joan on Twitter @CleanNergyPhotoÂ or her renewable energy photo blog.
Artists and Climate Change is a blog by playwright Chantal Bilodeau that tracks artistic responses from all disciplines to the problem of climate change. It is both a study about what is being done, and a resource for anyone interested in the subject. Art has the power to reframe the conversation about our environmental crisis so it is inclusive, constructive, and conducive to action. Art can, and should, shape our values and behavior so we are better equipped to face the formidable challenge in front of us.
