• Lucy O'Doherty

In 2021 Lucy O’Doherty was asked to make a series of four artworks in response to Climate Emergency: Feedback Loops, a series of short films that explained the concept of feedback loops in nature and how they are triggered by, and in turn accelerate, the warming of the earth caused by our fossil fuel emissions.

Narrated by Richard Gere and launched earlier in 2021 year by Greta Thunberg and the Dalai Lama, the films feature interviews with leading scientists combined with beautifully shot footage.

The works reflect aspects of the climate feedback loops affecting forests, permafrost, atmosphere and the albedo effect that have been set in motion by rising temperatures.

Lucy continued the series, making a further 4 works for the exhibition Melting Landscapes.
