living Planet Symposium, May 2019

Earlier this year I was delighted to be selected from 50 artists around Europe to the the Artist in Residence for the ESA at the Living Planet Symposium in May this year. I got to work closley with Dr paul Fisher, D Anna Maria Trofaler and the rest of the Climate office team ending with a number of stencial art paintings at the living Planet Symposuim in Milan. 

The Climate office webiste says:

Staging the art exhibition during the event aims to  draw the scientific community’s attention to ESA’s Climate Change Initiative and the satellite-derived climate data records it generates. 

These long-term, global observations help researchers to produce new scientific evidence and inform international decision-making through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

The popular appeal of street art is also expected to inspire and engage the next generation of Earth scientists and help to explain the findings and benefits of this initiative to a wider general public audience.

Shane’s collaboration with ESA follows his selection as the winner of the Climate from Space art competition last year, and continues his creative love of space.

His previous works have explored the concept of ‘choices’ on a journey and feature an astronaut character of neutral gender he calls SPACER. The new exhibition will include large-scale signature artworks and further examine the choices humanity is making, through the narrative of the climate and our growing knowledge of how our planet is changing.

“Working with the ESA Climate Office, I aim to celebrate the space that monitors Earth, but also to challenge the audience to consider what our future climate will be like based on the choices being made today.”
