Radical Ocean Futures

Exhbition during the Nordic Council of Ministers' Climate Action Weeks, 7 December at Norrsken House, Birger Jarlsgatan 57 C, Stockholm


The Radical Ocean Futures is an art-science exhibition that uses science fiction to explain some of the complex insights coming from science. It blends art and science and merges scientific fact with creative speculation.

Presented by its creator, Andrew Merrie from the Stockholm Resilience Centre, the exhibition shows four thought-provoking images that describe both utopian and dystopian marine futures.

The stunning images accompanying used to describe the scenarios are created by concept artist Simon Stålenhag. While they are fictional scenarios they draw on ecological, technological, socio-economic and governance trends and they are built on a rich and deep scientific evidence base.

The exhibition takes place Saturday 7 December between 12.30 and 13.30. It is free of charge and open to the public.

The exhibition is part of the Nordic Council of Ministers' Climate Action Weeks which take place parallell to the COP25 negotiations in Madrid, Spain, 2-13 December 2019. At the Norrsken House in Stockholm visitors will be able to watch and participate in a wide range of climate events in relation to the UN climate negotiations – the COP25. Read more here
