Last year we participated in Edinburgh Art Festival's 2013 programme through a new project CO2 Edenburgh.
CO2 Edenburgh was a collaboration between Creative Carbon Scotland, artists Tim Collins and Reiko Goto with Chris Malcolm, ecoartscotland and Art Space Nature exploring the impacts of Edinburgh’s Festivals on climate change through a visual art-technology performance project and asking the question ‘Can art change the climate?’
As part of EAF we hosted Spirit in the Air – an exhibition which used ground-breaking technology supplied by Gas Sensing Solutions and Envirologger to measure real-time carbon dioxide (CO2) levels when Edinburgh is packed to bursting with artistic activity and people. Throughout the month of August ‘Carbon Catchers’ roamed the the streets and parks of Edinburgh to seek out CO2 hotspots allowing the artists to make the invisible comprehensible through visual and sound works in the gallery.
