A collaborative project by ceramic artist Jake Boex, University of Exeter climate scientist Professor James Scourse and Phil Dyke (National Trust Coast and Marine Advisor), has resulted in this exhibition exploring our emotional reaction to climate change.
One thousand porcelain bowls act as data points showing the changing temperatures of the North Atlantic Ocean over the last millennium. Each bowl is marked with a specific year and is coloured, red to blue, by glaze made in part from the seashells that provided the data.
Laid out like a mandala, the evidence illustrates our interconnection with natural processes.
The exhibition runs from 22 February until 29 March, and is open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
All are welcome to attend. Entry is free.
This exhibition is part of the Creative Exchange Programme.
