'Museum of Nature' by Finnish artist Ilkka Halso, 2004, project in progress

The Copenhagen Climate Conference we can declare as failed. No one can really say how big the impact of the increasing CO2-level will be, but the worst case scenario has been inspiration for international artists since many years. The ‘Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe’ in Hamburg, Germany dedicated its upcoming exhibition to artistic visions of future living on a destroyed Planet Earth. It showcases mainly use-oriented projects of climatological capsules in the field of art, design, architecture, urbanism and geo-engineering.
