In the meantime, I want to show you a film, and direct you to a really amazing project, that a friend of mine, William Todd Jones, is behind. It is called the Ice Bear Project, and is finally coming to fruition. It’s aim is to create a powerful environmental message about the need to halt climate change, in a way that connects with as many people as possible. The sculptor, Mark Coreth, has created a life size sculpture of a Polar Bear, out of ice. As the ice bear melts, it leaves a skeleton, and a stark warning about the results of doing nothing to prevent climate change. This is a truly beautiful, and emotive piece of artwork!
The first Ice Bear arrives in Trafalgar Square, London in December this year, but the team aim to raise funds and repeat this in cities around the world.
Beautiful, but chilling (in more than one sense).
