Nature, Climate, Art investigates the impact of climate change in our lives and in our environment, layering and addressing the role of nature as disparate and essential to our human condition. One theme is a climate change, not as the drastic event concerning humans and their environment; but as a subtle narrative, which can make our living with nature a compelling one.
