Climate Feedback Loops is a display by Austrian artist and filmmaker Oliver Ressler, currently being shown at Humber Street Gallery in Hull.

In his practice, Ressler often explores themes of economics, the environment, climate breakdown and forms of resistance. For Climate Feedback Loops he combines recordings taken from an expedition in Svalbard in 2022, an archipelago between the Northern coast of Norway and the North Pole to create a video installation. The choice of place had dark origins – Svalbard is one of the fastest overheating place s on the planet. This becomes painfully apparent when we are faced with the piece, which uses the sounds of the Arctic collapse.

This moving work is shown alongside another film: Carbon and Captivity from 2022, recorded in the world’s largest facility for testing carbon capture technologies, at Technology Centre Mongstad in Norway.
