Abstract or Description:

In the middle of the most significant refugee crisis since World War II, this piece examines the imbrication of bodies within contemporary climate politics. The matrix brings together scientific, humanitarian and activist image making including: microscopic photography of atmospheric carbon aerosols, footage of refugee rescues in the Mediterranean taken by coastguards and by drones, and finally, video phone capture of a press conference by the Leader of the G77 nations Lumumba Di-Aping during the Copenhagen Climate Summit of 2009.
