Fairytale eCO2
Content
According to a recent study by researchers at the Universities of Bremen and Innsbruck, the
melting of glaciers today would not stop even if our CO2 emissions were to drop to zero; due to
the slow reaction of the ice, the ruinous process is now destined to continue until the end of the
century. Only if emissions had stopped at what they were in pre-industrial times could we have
avoided it.
In this series of photocollages, characters from a lost nineteenth century world populate natural
scenarios that are also perhaps destined to disappear. Men, women and landscapes come from
the beautiful period photographs preserved and shared by the National Library of Norway, the
northernmost state in Europe, whose northern foothills reach as far as the North Pole.
A fairytale universe of which a part is still reality. Will we be able to prevent it, too, from sliding
definitively into an imaginary memory?
