CO2 Lock-In, 2012
Stockholm, March 16-31, 2012
All human evil comes from a single cause, man's inability to sit still in a room. Blaise Pascal
Chain yourself to your climate guilt and become part of a sculptural installation. A series of ball and chains shaped as carbon dioxide molecules are placed out around the town of Stockholm. They’re made out of 100% recycled iron and weigh 300 kilos each. This represents an average Swede's CO2 emission during 10 days. The art project is a collaboration between Bigert & Bergström and WWF in connection with the world wide climate action Earth Hour. The ambition is to nail the public to a moment of slow reflection.
Sites with CO2 Lock-In sculptures:
On the opening day of the project, Bigert & Bergström will chain themselves to the sculptures.
