MELTDOWN – a visualization of climate change by Project Pressure

Natural History Museum
Vienna, Austria

Since 2008 Project Pressure has been commissioning world-renowned artists to conduct expeditions around the world, and for the first time these works will be shown together as MELTDOWN, a travelling exhibition premiering at the Natural History Museum, Vienna.

The exhibition is a narrative of the importance of glaciers told in a scientific, illustrative and poetic wayand each artist has a unique take on the subject. MELTDOWN shows scale from the planetary level to microscopic biological impact, and considers humanitarian suffering and more. Together the artistic interpretations in MELTDOWN give visitors unique insights into the world’s cryosphere, its fragile ecosystem and our changing global climate.
