Summary

"Impact by Degrees presents art by Australian and Australian-American media artists who have developed cultural responses to one of the most urgent challenges to confront humanity -- Climate Change. Their explorations are broad, poetic and imaginative, ranging across debates on environmental and social sustainability challenges caused by climate change, growing security, the importance of innovation and action at the local level, to abstractions of artificial eco-systems. The artworks featured in Impact by Degrees are poignant reminders of the efficacy, relatedness and intrinsic inter-dependence of our biophysical, social and electronic habitats. They encourage us to be engaged and connected to this challenge and above all to have faith in our common destiny. Impact by Degrees is presented by the Embassy of Australia in Washington DC in the lead up to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, Conference of the Parties in Copenhagen 2009."
