Feedback Loops explores the high altitude plains, geological formations and glaciers, inhabitants and man made topographies of the Tibetan Plateau.
Working with the region’s cultural archaeology to intertwine the ecological and cultural significance of the Plateau, a place revered as the symbolic threshold of human exploration, spirituality and as a crucial climatic component in global warming.
Known as the Third Pole the Tibetan Plateau plays a significant role in global climate and the Asian water cycle. Rising temperatures on the Tibetan Plateau have resulted in rapid glacial retreat and desertification as the permafrost melts and the fragile grass lands deteriorate. As the water tower of Asia dries up hydropolitical tension is increasing in Asia and the plateaus influence on the formation of high pressure systems in Eurasia is felt as far away as Europe where summer heat waves have broken all records.
The projects title, Feedback Loops, is intended to emphasis that every action humanity takes has consequences that return to shape the future in a way we cannot foresee.
