Im Rahmen des Canary Project fotografierten Sayler und Morris Landschaften, die vom Klimawandel bedroht sind. Die Laguna Parón in Peru zeigt exemplarisch die Konsequenzen von Gletscher- und Permafrostschmelze. Für A HISTORY OF THE FUTURE (2005-2016) wurden diese Aufnahmen kontextualisiert und im öffentlichen Raum ausgestellt. >> >>

“The project consists of images but is not the images themselves. The project is the display and distribution of those images. The images live many lives.They have been art objects. They have been pedagogical tools in science museums and classrooms. They have been billboards and bus ads. In each case, Sayler / Morris struck a different bargain between illustrating the facts of climate change […] and laying bare a state of disorientation and collapse of scale that seemed the only reliable opening into the trauma of climate change.” (Sayler/Morris) >>
