Visualizing the invisible drivers of climate change ; atmospheric gas and micro particules; carbon dioxyde, methane and blackcarbon. A work in collaboration with cnrs/legos and the scientist Catherine Jeandel.
Albedo makes it possible to encounter the mountain, to come closer to it and to join the expedition with a photographic solarization device in situ on the back. The Device is transported on each expedition and takes place almost performatively in the landscape. The image is then constructed with the physical engagement of the territory.
The photographic traces of the expedition are accompanied by samples, eroded material taken from the place of printing as well as the location data. During the expedition, the collected material becomes a geographic trace as well as a pigment base in the photosensitive solution. In situ printing takes into account all elements - solar radiation, weather conditions, atmospheric gases, minerals.
