Carbon Capture and Storage/Celebrating 400ppm

This exhibition showcases a small selection of works from an ongoing series of soot drawings (carbon capture and storage / carbon reduction). In a futile attempt to find a positive aspect to climate change, the exhibition features animals that are likely to benefit from a warming planet.
