Peak District Climate Change Installation

Posted September 22, 2017 by Roseanne

If you’re strapped for plans this weekend, why not take yourself on a roadtrip to the Peak District and also witness a light installation that aims to raise awareness about climate change.

Daan Roosegaarde, Dutch artist and innovator, creates vast eery waves of light by using the latest LED technology, software and lasers to produce an atmospheric sea floating above you. His mission is to provoke creativity and thought in relation to the impounding effects of climate change and rising sea levels.

In an interview with Channel 4 on the 21st September, Roosegaarde explains why he chose the Peak District. He says “The mountain that is literally perforated through the power of water, hundreds of years has created this beautiful curvature so even though it seems that water is something liquid, it’s unstoppable…” and that “a lot of people will have to move because of rising sea levels, a lot of places will disappear because of that. The world is changing and we have to design a way out of it… It’s not going away by itself.”
