Science %>% Society

Science needs to spill over to society, and we as scientists have to be proactive in it. Here my bits about this.

Summits of snow

In 2022 I collaborated with the artist Eva Marklund, in modifying a set of her sculptures to showcase the effect of climate change in the world’s mountains. Ten years before that, Eva installed 15-m long sculptures representing the snow cover of the highest peaks of each continent, in a busy transport hub in Umeå (Sweden). Together, we represented the projected ice cover remaining in each mountain under three different emission scenarios from IPCC. This is a visual way for people to grasp the dramatic effects of climate change, More details can be found in the website
