During the last few years, I have had the opportunity to observe first hand the devastating impact that climate change is having on glaciers in Alaska and in Europe. It’s heartbreaking to see the rapid retreat of these spectacular natural features. French photographer and street artist Philippe Echaroux has responded to this ongoing environmental catastrophe by literally shining a light on the problem.
The Ice Scream project uses light art projected directly onto glaciers to raise awareness about global warming and the decline of European glaciers. Echaroux’s light art leaves no trace on the landscape but dramatically highlights the issue.
