ARTEFACTS are 'objects crafted by human beings'.

ARTEFACTS combines the words "art" and "facts".

The exhibition

The exhibition’s title reflects that we humans have a noticeable impact on our planet.

The exhibition combines the

  • art of the renowned US aerial photographer J Henry Fair with
  • facts and scientific analysis from the JRC.

How humanity and nature could thrive together

With intriguing aerial photographs, ARTEFACTS illustrates some of the threats we humans pose to planet Earth as a result of our own economic development.

ARTEFACTS aims to illustrate the science behind the developing of European Union policies that aim to ensure that we humans can continue to

  • increase our prosperity and
  • make sensible use of natural resources, nurturing our planet's environment.

The exhibition is built around the themes of air, water, food, energy and climate.

We will show how we can meet our growing needs without damaging our natural environment.

ARTEFACTS aims to make us think about "how we want to deal with the future of our one and only planet".
