Political art doesn’t always involve the people it represents, but artist Mel Chin isn’t one to let them take a back seat in his pieces. He immerses himself in the communities that inspire him—like Flint, Michigan. One of his latest pieces, “Flint Fit,” took that city’s environmental crisis and turned it into…
Art doesn’t need to live in museums or galleries. It can live on the cover of scientific journals, educating the masses in creative ways.
Our planet is a cool and good planet. To prove this point, I would simply point you to the map above.
Pictures of the air pollution in developing countries have gone viral, and stories about toxic fog have proliferated for years. Yet they can feel unreal and divorced from the everyday experience in Western countries, where huge strides have been made to clean up the air (for wealthy people anyways). A new art…
Sometimes, the silence of a piece of art can leave your mind running—in a good way. Other times, you need some music, some prose, or some sound.

Dan Bell is a biologist with a knack for map-making.
In Antarctica, you can do more than see the impact climate change is having on the icy landscape. You can hear it, too.
Even if you’re aware that glaciers are melting and sea levels are climbing, these facts can be difficult to connect with on an emotional level. A sound artist at the University of Virginia is hoping to change that by turning scientific data into music, and, well, the result is pretty damn cool.
A startup spent the last three years developing markers that convert air pollution into marker ink.
You, dumb (OK, me): climate change is bad and we’re screwed. The Dutch, smart: climate change is bad but also we can solve this with dope design.
Among our planet’s spectacular landscapes, the northern Chile’s Atacama Desert stands out for its otherworldliness.
Walking among the muted browns and greens and soft contours of shrubs and trees of Harvard Forest’s eastern hemlocks, it’s impossible to miss David Buckley Borden’s mark on the landscape.
