Dreaming the Designer Climate (Iceland)

In this chapter from the virtual exhibition “Global Environments: A 360º Visual Journey,” Jeroen Oomen and Adam Sébire delve into the world of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies through a video triptych in Hellisheiði in Iceland. The three screens, shown here in one video, capture experiments at Hellishei∂i, aspects of the sequestered CO2, and an imagined future.

Mountains, Glaciers, and Climate

Mountains, Glaciers, and Climate

In this chapter of her virtual exhibition, “Human-Nature Relations in German Literature,” Sabine Wilke examines mountains and glacial environments in German-language literary descriptions. Whereas the German Romantic poets still highlighted mountainous nature as deeply ambiguous, Goethe’s Faust tried to understand mountainous nature in its materiality through scientific studies. Modernism focuses on the more often destructive results of human-nature entanglements. For the German-language version of this exhibition, click here.
