The Melting Iceberg: A Constant Reminder of Global Warming


We all know what's going to happen as sea levels rise, but now, thanks to this project by New Zealand-based Hyperthesis Visual Lab, you can watch a visual representation of how it'll happen, right from the comfort of your own home. "The Melting Iceberg" is a diligent, not-so-subtle reminder that our globe is persistently warming, and, thanks to candle "technology," you can be reminded every time you want a little mood lighting.

Aside from aesthetic appeal, Hyperthesis' main goal is to send an ecological message: "This candle creates a strong conscious about our actions of warming the planet with the consumption of coal, oil and natural gases. This consumption has become main cause of greenhouse gas increases in the atmosphere and produce heat waves for our planet, melting the icebergs and shrinking our landmasses. Our intention is to save nature and not to lose it forever." Hit the jump to see the melting iceberg in action. ::Hyperthesis Visual Lab via ::Core77
