What’s been your best human-to-earth experience in your life? Jumping off a rock into the ocean? Playing with a kitten? Lying in a meadow of daisies? Standing on top of a mountain? Smelling a tangerine? Think about the thing you think the world is worth saving for and what you would miss if the earth turned into a barren, smoking husk. What’s so great about silly old planet Earth anyway?
This is a quandary we put to No Planet No Fun, a collective of 45 artists creating refreshingly positive, upbeat work for an exhibition designed to highlight the effects of climate change. Choosing to communicate the dangers of climate change using positivity rather than harrowing videos of icebergs breaking, cities flooding/burning and polar bears dying, they’re still ultimately spreading a message of doom; but in a different way that might just get through to people.
Here’s what No Planet No Fun think Earth is worth saving for.
