German artist Robert Kessler presents his project "Climate Meter". It is
a 70-metre-high kinetic sculpture that visualises climate change very
simply. Current international research data controls its position and
shows the acceleration of global warming. With the "Climate Meter",
Kessler provides an international, cross-cultural communication tool for
raising awareness about the state of the climate. It shows the
imbalance between the exploitation and destruction of natural resources,
and global warming’s fatal consequences. A 3-D animation shows this
development as movement and can be seen at https://www.climatemeter.net.
Interested parties are being sought to implement the concept.
The magnitude and abstractness of the climate catastrophe overwhelms
many people. That is why the first step towards defence is understanding
the imminent danger to our planet. The sculpture "Climate Meter"
visualises this threat with a set of scales and makes abstract climate
data tangible. Restoring the balance of the scales is the goal.
"I decided to create a work that makes the connection between the
ecosystem and the world's climate understandable and thus motivate
people to act climate-consciously," explains Robert Kessler. The "CM"
provides an urgently needed tool for raising awareness at the 2021
The work is to be installed in a highly frequented environment - the
water. A 3-D animation of the project and further information are
available at: https://www.climatemeter.net
As a social kinetic artist, Robert Kessler addresses socially
relevant issues. His understanding of dynamic processes makes it
possible to portray them artificially and to encourage people to think
The Cultural and Creative Industries Initiative of Germany’s
Government has awarded Kessler the title of "Cultural and Creative
