Marina Has Made a Video Game About Climate Change
Just being released in Venice, here is the artist`s environmental message.
News 12 May 2019

How do we fix climate change when there’s no way to stop it? Godmother of performance art, Marina Abramović, has created an app with an environmental message.
The Rising app shows an avatar of Abramović surrounded by melting ice caps, inside a glass tank that slowly fills with water. We can save her by pledging to support the environment, by reducing waste, conserving energy and educating others on going green.

It’s a trailblazing tactic in how it fuses online with offline—the tasks are laid out like a budgeting app or a to-do list, and each action affects your everyday life and the app.

Now, she’s showing the artwork behind this app on May 7 at Ca’ Rezzonico Gallery in Venice, presented by the Phi Center in Montreal alongside the works of Renata Morales.
