Some people may never even try to comprehend the concept of a changing climate -- hello, nearly every GOP presidential candidate! -- but musician and performance artist Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky, is there for anyone willing to open his or her ears. LiveScience provides a compelling review of DJ Spooky's recent performance of Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica, a multimedia portrait of global warming, at the New York Academy of Sciences.
"It's not about information, this is actually about emotion,” the artist told his audience. “Everyone is coming from a radically different perspective, and so art is about perspective." Added the program’s moderator, New York Times journalist and blogger Andrew Revkin: "The only connection to these places is through the imagination, so why not have the most imaginative people on Earth be a part of pulling that information back to the rest of us, too?”
