The Nature of Cities
United Nations Pavilion, Shanghai Expo, China, July, 2010
UNEP has asked Art Works For Change to produce an art installation for the UN Pavilion at the upcoming Shanghai Expo. Up to 20 video artists, architects and animators will create short videos addressing the theme of urban biodiversity.
The renowned Zoetrope Aubry Productions is providing the design and technical editing for the project. The result will be a visually compelling and entertaining exhibition, combined with effective storytelling, that informs and inspires viewers to respect nature and her ecosystems. The UN anticipates that the installation be seen by 40,000 visitors a day.
