Climate change is the proverbial "elephant in the room." (For Indians . . . this is common Western expression about something big, obvious and uncomfortable that no one wants to notice it.) The "elephant in the room" feeds on denial and if not noticed, eventually breaks the house apart. By then of course, the damage has been done.
3000 students at Ryan International School in Delhi, India along with the India 350 team create a beautiful elephant up to it's knees in rising water. This image was part of the first ever Global Art Project Visible From Space in which giant living art related to climate change was conducted in 20 locations world wide in conjunction with the Climate Change Conference in Cancun, Mexico.
This film also celebrates the Hindi elephant diety, Ganesha, that is popular across all faiths in India. The elephant was recently declared India's National Heritage Animal in celebration of it's unique role in India's history.
