Nick Cobbing - Greenpeace

 Arctic Climatic Tour 2011

With suggestions that the Arctic ice could reach a record low this year, ScanLAB Projects joined one of Greenpeace’s tours to the region to map what is going on up there. Harnessing the skills usually used for large scale architectural or artistic projects we are now working with Cambridge University scientists to produce detailed computer simulations of the ice floes.

An Occupy Montreal protester holds up a sign in Victoria Square Park  one day after occupiers were evicted by the city of Montreal.  The  mask, taken from the 2006 film V for Vendetta in which a masked man  starts a revolution aimed at overthrowing the corrupt elite powers  governing his country, has become a symbol of the Occupy movement which  seeks to redress inequalities and injustices in the current global  order.  The sign strikes an important chord given the current news coming out of the climate talks in Durban, South Africa. Montreal, November 26, 2011.
