Assembled with a collection of stained ceramic tiles, they visualise the projected cost of carbon up to 2050. Sitting within this stratified cost, is a stone block, digitally carved with the Multilateral Development Bank climate commitments in the last 10 years. Using data as a tool which carves shapes, such as the line formed by a statistical chart, these two graphics embody the landscape we are currently shaping through climate finance.
