A simple click could change the climate, but we can’t agree
Responsible C02 emissions? I doubt it.
I sought to understand the causes of current climate change. Is this mainly due to excess CO2 emissions? This is a complex question, but it is undeniable that the climate is out of balance and that human activity contributes significantly to it. However, during my research I discovered that the main cause may not lie so much in CO2 emissions, but rather in our inability to agree on desired climate conditions. This perspective offers a reflection on the role of human consensus and collective management in the phenomenon of climate change.
To experiment with this idea, I designed a unique system: un clic allowing you to order rain or shine for free. Technically, this device worked wonderfully. However, he quickly ran into a major problem related to the diversity of human desires. When some asked for sunshine to enjoy the beach, others wanted rain for their crops. This inability to reach a consensus led to significant climate disruption in the context of my project.
This phenomenon perfectly illustrated the complexity of meeting the conflicting needs and wants of a diverse population through a centralized access point. My experience has highlighted the challenges inherent in managing natural resources and meeting varied expectations, while highlighting the potential impacts of such interventions on the environment. This project, while an artistic exploration, offered insight into the dilemmas and responsibilities of manipulating natural elements, even in a hypothetical or symbolic context.
So rain or sun?
