Longitudinal Installation

Cortada originally painted and placed 24 shoes in a circle around the North and South Poles.  The shoes represent the different parts of the world affected by climate change.

This ritual simply has you place the 24 shoes in a circle as the artist did at the ceremonial South Pole and North Pole.  Then read the words of those affected by climate change across the planet.   We invite you to share a picture of your shoe and tell us how climate change is affecting you by joining our community.

Participate by following these steps: 

1.   Read the 24 quotes from individuals around the planet explaining how global climate change is affecting their lives.

2.  Think about how your local environment has changed in your life time. This is your quote.  Click here to download instructions.

2.  Record yourself on video reading your quote.

4.  Upload video link, text and a photo of your shoe on the form below.  Photos of performance will be posted online.
