Explore the Art. Learn the Science. Inquire.
Environmental Graphiti – ART from the SCIENCE of Climate Change – uses contemporary art to enhance public awareness about the science of climate change.
Each of the 50+ digital paintings uses as its "blueprint" a graph, chart, map, word or number relating to a key fact about climate change. Once viewers understand that each piece is derived from a key indicator or fact about climate change, they are intrigued and become more engaged with both the art and the underlying message.
The art, printed large on metal, is vibrant and beautiful, delivers the message about climate change in a unique and powerful way. Art makes the science more accessible. Science makes the art more meaningful. They are a potent combination.
Alisa Singer, founder of Environmental Graphiti, has since her retirement from the practice of corporate law, devoted herself to creating art to further causes she believes are important. Alisa was attracted by the inherently aesthetic design elements of scientific charts and graphs, and intrigued by the idea of using art to give them dramatic effect. She conceived the Environmental Graphiti project and created the series, The Art of Climate Change, with abstract images derived from the science behind the critical changes impacting our planet. You can read more about Singer's work in January's issue of Minding Nature, a publication of the Center for Humans and Nature.
