Invisible Dust Artist Shortlisted for Climate Week Awards
Later today, the winners in each category of the Climate Week Awards are to be announced. The Awards recognise the most inspirational and impressive actions taking place to enable people to live and work more sustainable, thus helping to combat climate change.
Among the four finalists for the ‘best artistic response’ category is Invisible Dust artist Ellie Harrison.
Ellie’s piece ‘Early Warning Signs‘ features a series of fluorescent green pavement signs that rotate in the wind with the words ‘climate’ and ‘change’, to remind us of the consequences of our consumption by using the same marketing methods used to promote it. Four venues are chosen each year, with each producing a report on the public responses to the art.
The awards form part of Climate Week, Britain’s biggest climate change campaign, culminating in a week of activities to showcase practical solutions for sustainability from every sector of society. Each year, half a million people attend 3,000 events in Britain’s biggest ever environmental occasion.
The other award categories, the winners of which will also be announced later today, are best business, best new product or technology, best education or campaign initiative, best initiative from government or public services, best community initiative and most inspirational person.
