During the weather conference COP25 Alice @alice.audouin invited Michael Pinsky @michael_pinsky , John Gerrard @johngerrard.inst , Fernando García Dory @fer_dory, Cédric Carles and other friends all aware that in a finite world we cannot grow indefinitely


On the occasion of the Climate Change Conference @cop25_madrid from December 2 to 13, 2019, artists explore the impact of climate change. Ten years ago, in 2009, Darya von Berner created in Madrid “Universal Cloud Flag” a white flag of minute water drops, like the clouds that nourish and sustain life. Shortly after she carried out this idea that she patented, manufactured, and installed it in front of The Peace Palace in The Hague in 2012. The cloud flag was emitted from the top of a steel mast, using fog pressure to spray water in suspension into the atmosphere.
