Hi! I know I haven't posted for a long time but I have been very busy. I work 4-5 days a week and can really only post here on holidays or when I have some free time. At the moment, I am enjoying our summer holidays that finish at the end of January, which is when I go back to my job, teaching.
This post is about an exhibition my husband and I visited on Saturday in Manly, a seaside suburb in Sydney. It was an interesting exhibition where 8 artists and 8 engineers worked together to share ideas about art, engineering and the environment, with the support of the Aboriginal Heritage Office.
Personally, I believe all of life is interconnected and so, I really enjoyed this exhibit, which showed how scientists and artists can work together to share a story. Because Manly is situated by the coast, the exhibition focussed on the coastline and the influence that people and nature have on our natural world. In Australia recently, we are in the middle of a drought and have had some terrible bushfires because of this. Climate change is seen to be one of the main contributing factors and there is much pressure on our government to take more action.
I have included some photos to enjoy, along with the text that accompanied the sculptures. I have also taken some photos through the window as this shows you where the exhibition takes place and ties in with the theme of the connectedness of the exhibition with the natural landscape/location.
Tell me below in the comments' section, what is your opinion of climate change? How is your country addressing climate change?
