Project 10,000+

by Becky Parker

Project 10,000+ by Anaid and Daniel.

Their project focuses on endangered and threatened trees and attempts to generate more awareness of the complex and often misunderstood relation between biodiversity loss and the climate crisis.

Step by step they are building a large scale art installation with the involvement of other young people who collaborate in creating the audio element of it by giving their voices, literally and metaphorically, to the 17,500 tree species that are under threat. Each element of this installation is connected to existing scientific work making this project also about building step by step our skills and knowledge and shifting our relationship to the science so that our actions and our future choices are navigated by our awareness and understanding of it.
