Coral Rekindling Venus


Coral Rekindling Venus

During the transit of Venus in the 18th century, countries at war paused hostilities and co-operated to allow scientists safe passage for the taking of astronomical measurements that significantly increased our knowledge of the universe.

For the 2012 Transit of Venus on World Environment Day, artist Lynette Wallworth created a fulldome work about climate change and coral reefs – reminding us of the importance of global co-operation towards protection of the environment.

Similar to the 18th century transit of Venus event, imagine global co-operation for a global problem. Imagine corals as the barometer of climate change. Imagine we are the pivot point. Imagine rekindling Venus.
