Würzburg, Germany – At the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, the famous German artist Robert Kessler presents his project “Climate Meter”. It is a 70 meter high kinetic sculpture that very simply visualizes climate change. Current international research data is controlling its position and showing the acceleration of global warming. With the “Climate Meter”, Kessler offers an international and intercultural communication tool to raise awareness of the state of the climate. It shows the imbalance between the exploitation and destruction of natural resources and the fatal consequences of global warming. A 3D animation shows this development as movement and can be viewed at https://www.climatemeter.net. Interested parties are sought to implement the concept.
The scale and abstract nature of the climate catastrophe overwhelms many people. Therefore, the first step in defense is to understand the imminent danger to our planet. The sculpture “Climate Meter” visualizes this threat with a set of scales and makes abstract climate data tangible. The goal is to restore the balance of the scale.
“I decided to create a work that makes the link between the ecosystem and the global climate understandable and thus motivate people to act with the climate in mind,” explains Robert Kessler. The “CM” provides a necessary emergency tool to raise public awareness for the 2021 Climate Summit.
The work must be installed in a high traffic environment – water. A 3D animation of the project and more information are available at: https://www.climatemeter.net
As a social kinetic artist, Robert Kessler tackles socially relevant questions. His understanding of dynamic processes makes it possible to represent them artificially and to inspire people to think or act.
The German government’s Cultural and Creative Industries Initiative has awarded Kessler the title of “Cultural and Creative Pilot”.
