DJ Spooky’s “The Book of Ice” inspires action on climate change
Climate change can be a daunting topic to approach. The scope and complexities of the issue can often prove to be overwhelming, rather than engaging. Fortunately, some of the preeminent creative minds of our generation are choosing to educate and inspire our society into action.
HATCHer DJ Spooky (aka Paul Miller) is choosing to do just that through “The Book of Ice”: “In light of climate change and tireless human enterprise to be present everywhere on the planet, Miller uses Antarctica as a point on entry for contemplating humanity’s relationship with the natural world. The two additional contributors to The Book Of Ice – Columbia University’s Brian Greene, best selling author of The Elegant Universe, and Ross A. Virginia, Director of Arctic Studies at Dartmouth College, a world renowned expert on Antarctica – add several layers of analysis to the books exploration of the theme of science and graphic design.”
DJ Spooky has harnessed the essence of HATCH – using a multi-pronged creative approach to tackle some of the world’s most pressing challenges – to inspire people around the world to think about the potential impacts we have on the natural world; and how those impacts can have better outcomes for future generations.
