In 1968, astronauts on the Apollo 8 spaceship took a photograph of the Earth. Combined with ubiquitous recycling symbols and tree icons, Earthrise has become the defining symbol of the climate movement.
But it's also become a tired symbol, and perhaps even a token of corporate inaction, slow conferences, and an environmentalism that often leaves people, politics and justice behind. What are the images, stories, sounds, and performances that we get more from?
Visible Signs That Something Isn’t Right is a collection of creative responses to the climate emergency, published by the team behind It’s Freezing in LA! magazine with Open Practice. Mixing creative writing, images and essays, this new publication explores how different types of imaginative work can grapple with the ecological, justice and political challenges we face.
