New Climates – a weblog art exhibition on climate change and networked culture

The New Climates project is a cool example of the use of New Media to create and disseminate artwork that explores the relationship between art, global climate change and networked culture. Contributing artists post short videos on subjects related to the theme of the project and, even though the site just launched, there are already some interesting contributions, including The Queensbridge Wind Power Project, that presents a hypothetical example of using windmills on top of a bridge in NYC, and N., which looks at the issue of warming in the Arctic through visualizations and sound bytes.

So, if you are interested in how New Media art can explore and inform issues related to global climate change, definitely check out New Climates.
