Nightwatch. Visual conjunction of art and astronomy

The Natural History Museum Vienna is premiering MELTDOWN, an exhibition created by the climate change charity Project Pressure.
 
Project Pressure uses art as a positive touch-point to inspire action and behavioral change. The selected artworks in MELTDOWN relate to vanishing glaciers, and demonstrate the impact of climate change through various media. Unlike wildfires, flooding, and other weather events, glacier mass losses even out variations and can be attributed to global warming. As such, they are key indicators of climate change.
 
Since 2008 Project Pressure has been commissioning world-renowned artists to conduct expeditions around the world, and for the first time these works will be shown together as MELTDOWN. The projects were developed and executed with scientists to ensure accuracy.

MELTDOWN will inspire, and will also activate the visitor. It is time to move beyond awareness: the mission of Project Pressure is to incite real behavioral change.
