fire & ice
Fire and Ice is a Video and Sound installation by Canadian video artist Brian Ring and Vietnamese composer Vu Nhat Tan. This artistic collaboration focuses on the consequences of global warming in the world today and hopes to raise awareness for an issue that threatens to have serious consequences for the earth and all life on it.
Fire and Ice is the second part of an event entitled “Hope and Fear“. It is the first in a series of events which will focus on the issue of climate change and global warming and its effects particularly on the climate in Asia and especially Vietnam.
Hope and Fear comprises two events, the first of which is a discussion and debate in our popular Cafe Scientifique format where a small panel of prominent speakers is invited to give their views on the subject of Climate Change. The subject will then be thrown open to the audience.
The topic for discussion at this event is
Vietnam is not a major emitter of Greenhouse Gases so it does not need to worry about Climate Change.
The speakers at this event which is organised in collaboration with the magazine Tia Sang, are Prof Pham Duy Hien, Dr Dang Kim Son, and writer Nguyen Ngoc. The discussion will be led by well-known TV science presenter and scientist Nguyen Quang.
The talk and discussion begins at 5 pm on Sunday, 23 March 2008.
The Video and Sound installation begins at 8 pm on Sunday, 23 March 2008 at the British Council, 40 Cat Linh, Hanoi.
Invitations can be collected from the British Council from 17 March 2008.
