Limen Lab presents:
3–28 September 2022
Opening event: Saturday 3rd September, 3–5 pm
Limen lab worked with artists, activists, scientists and organisations to bring a dynamic exhibition of video, photography, sculpture, and an online 'serious' game on the subject of sea level rise. As part of the opening event on Saturday 3rd September, Bianca Ranson delivered an opening talk about the 'Carbon Stack' sculpture she created for the exhibition.
Blue Radius was a local exploration of the ecological emergencies relating to climate change-induced sea level rise taking place along Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland) coastlines. Blue Radius also looked at the ways in which we damage local marine ecology through ongoing extractive practices, from the mining of coastal sand for construction to permits for marina building on fragile sites.
The exhibition’s starting point was LandRadius|2, an audiovisual exchange between artists, scientists, mana whenua and community activists who share observations of the at-risk Hauraki Gulf Marine Park that I produced last year for the Dear2050 exhibition in Zurich, Switzerland, Oceans on the Rise.
