Sara-Yezih Art Group,
Getting Diverse in Global Warming

By combining canvas paintings, 3D landscape models, audio-visual effects and animations, Getting Diverse in Global Warming constructs larger-than-life shadow box worlds that visualize the impacts of global warming on our precious Earth and the multitudes of species that live on it. Artists Sara Endalew and Yezihalem Mesfin use their combined experience in visual art and technology to highlight the effects of global warming such as drought, flooding and scarcity of living resources that forces people to migrate and demographics to shift.

Using clever timeline animation, Getting Diverse in Global Warming shows how the actions of people (individually and collectively) in one part of the world affect people in a different part of the world, due to the prevalence of activities that result to the emission of greenhouse gases.
