Making Sense combines the work of artists Jasmine Targett and Debbie Symons. The works highlight the Antarctic region as a sensitive indicator of global change. Fearlessly the artists search for understanding the history of changing environmental conditions, presenting insight into mapping the forecast for tomorrow.

Tomorrow LandJasmine Targett’s luminescent series Life Support Systems uses NASA space suit helmet glass to discuss the history of monitoring the Earth’s Atmosphere and today’s attitudes towards Climate Change: the forecast for tomorrow. Deceptively beautiful the works examine alarming environmental data and the sublime beauty of impending decay.

Debbie Symons’ work is politically charged, discussing the moral and ethical consequences of ecological decisions. Symons’ drawing and video works explore the historical, political and environmental predicament of the Antarctic and its waters. The works chart the effects of environmental change on the 60 migratory species that rely on this region.
