The latest news regarding climate change splits up humanity to three points of view:
- I knew it all the time
- Thus it's true, how awful
- Nothing but making a fuzz, don't wanna know anything about it
In fact climate change is happening already since decades speeding up whilst we are watching. It also cannot be stopped in foreseeable time. All statements in respect to the future of our climate, influences on our lives are based upon facts which will be turned over tomorrow. How do we Webists look at the consequences due to climate change?
This project starts as online project but will become a real life show if sponsors are found. Look for sponsors in your area too to make this a real life show also in your region. Submissions will be printed, framed and exhibited with the help of sponsors, first in Germany then in other countries too. Therefore it is necessary to submit works in printable quality. To win sponsors for this exhibition an appropriate website will be set up starting April 1, 2007. This international project will only be feasible if at least 20 Webists are willing to get involved.
This is a juried show. Topic fitting images only please.
Attention: Participants are asked to put a link to the project page to their website.
