Adrian Lahoud, The Shape of the Eclipse, installation and projection, 2016. This project tracks the movement of anthropogenic aerosols from north to south, and the movement of humans from south to north. Emitted by industrial processes in the Northern Hemisphere and carried into the air by wind currents until they float high above the Atlantic Ocean, aerosols interact with solar radiation changing ocean temperatures and affecting the intensity of the wet season in the Sahel. One consequence of exacerbated water stress in the Sahel is a loss of arable land, something that intensifies existing conflicts and drives diasporic movements of people toward cities like Lagos and the shores of southern Europe.
