IE University lights up with a series of TBA21–Academy videos on the challenges of climate change

The artwork by artist Will Benedict have been projected onto the façade of an IE University building.

One of the buildings of IE University in Madrid has been used as a giant outdoor film screen this week for a series of videos entitled “All Bleeding Stops Eventually”, created by artist Will Benedict and digital edutainment platform DIS in collaboration with Chus Martínez, commissioned by TBA21–Academy for its initiative Ocean Archive.

The videos were specially created to focus attention on a report by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change which revealed that since 1970, the world’s oceans have warmed steadily as they have absorbed more than 90% of excess heat in the climate.
