Love it. Every idea - great, terrible, weird, genius- has to start somewhere!

Da Vinci Work Recreated on Melting Arctic Ice
Posted by SHFT on September 7, 2011 in Photography

Leonardo da Vinci's famous Vitruvian Man sketch has been reproduced by an artist in the Arctic to draw attention to climate change. John Quigley, an artist specializing in aerial art, travelled on a Greenpeace icebreaker to create the copper artwork in the Fram Strait, about 500 miles from the North Pole. The piece, entitled "Melting Vitruvian Man", measures the equivalent of four Olympic-size swimming pools. The man's two arms and one leg have been cut off, symbolically melting into the sea to illustrate the disappearing ice.

"We created the Melting Vitruvian Man because climate change is literally eating into the body of our civilisation," Quigley said in a video statement.

This September could mark the lowest sea ice minimum on record.

TOUCH : Le monde au bout des doigts

Une exposition en deux parties à voir au Mudac et au Musée de la main. Le toucher, magique, bénéfique, déroutant ou irritant, ne laisse pas indifférent. Véritable éloge de ce sens longtemps considéré comme primaire, l'exposition plonge le visiteur dans les formes multiples de notre rapport sensoriel et sensuel au monde…
