Peter Funch, at Fotografisk Center Copenhagen

Project Pressure is thrilled to announce the opening of “The Imperfect Atlas,” a solo exhibition by the esteemed artist Peter Funch at the Fotografisk Center, part of the Copenhagen Photo Festival. This exhibition, running from June 1 to August 11, 2024, powerfully aligns with Project Pressure’s mission to address ecological and climate issues through the intersection of art, science, and activism.

Parts of The Imperfect Atlas was supported and co-developed by Project Pressure during the earlier stages and Project Pressure curated the works and chose a small selection which was included in the travelling exhibition MELTDOWN.

Peter Funch’s “The Imperfect Atlas” is a profound exploration of climate change, focusing on the Mt. Baker and Mt. Rainier regions. As a range of other Project Pressure artists, Funch uses photographic techniques to document the drastic changes these landscapes undergo due to human impact. His work integrates historical images with contemporary photography to create a compelling narrative about environmental transformation and the urgency of climate action.

Project Pressure, with over 15 years of experience, has been at the forefront of creating interdisciplinary projects that drive environmental awareness and action. We have partnered with leading organizations like the World Glacier Monitoring Service and NASA, and our projects have received recognition from prestigious bodies such as the Queen of Denmark and Arts Council England.

The exhibition runs from June 1 to August 11, 2024 see for details

Nominated for EARTH PHOTO 2023

Klaus Thymann of Project Pressure was working in Svalbard researching beluga whales and the team created a short film about the project. We are honored, it has been nominated for the Earth Photo Prize. This work and all other nominated is on show at the Royal Geographical Society – the project was supported by Parajumpers.

Project Pressure’s exhibition MELTDOWN opens at KühlhausBerlin

Since 2008, the climate change charity Project Pressure has been commissioning world-renowned artists to conduct expeditions to document changes to the world’s vanishing glaciers.

Featuring images from all seven continents, the exhibited works range in scale from the planetary level to the microscopic biological impact, with artistic interpretations giving an unique insight into the world’s cryosphere, its fragile ecosystem, and our changing global climate.

The series of artworks includes artist Peter Funch’s use of vintage postcards as a model for his images of American glaciers to capture the effects of glacial recession; Norfolk + Thymann’s images of part of the Rhône glacier covered in geo-thermal cloth to limit melting; Richard Mosse’s photograph of the ice cave under the Vatnajökull glacier in Iceland; and Noémie Goudal’s large-scale photographic installation mirroring the shifting glacial landscape, printed on biodegradable paper.

The show will open on February 17th 2023 – please join us!

MELTDOWN continues its journey in New Zealand, where rivers have rights


Just as our travelling exhibition MELTDOWN closes in Ljubljana, the locally produced and sustainably distributed exhibition continues its journey in New Zealand. On June 3 it opened to the public after being sailed to its second New Zealand location, Nelson Provincial Museum.

Apart from being one of the first countries to pledge a carbon-neutral future, New Zealand was the first to grant natural resource legal rights. In 2017 the Whanganui River was granted legal rights equal to humans, meaning, harming nature legally equals harming local communities. The legal and philosophical shift is essential – instead of treating nature as a resource and from a perspective of ownership and management, we treat it equally as an essential part of a whole.

The same philosophy can be found in our exhibition MELTDOWN Visualising Climate Change. It runs as a thread throughout the production, distribution and central theme. The exhibition focuses on human-induced climate change. It sailed from the North Island in New Zealand (Te Ika-a-Māu), from the museum Whirinaki Whare Taonga in Upper Hutt, to the South Island (Te Waipounamu), where it is shown at Nelson Provincial Museum

MELTDOWN: Visualizing Climate Change

Where: The Nelson Provincial Museum, Trafalgar and Hardy Streets, Nelson Central, Nelson

Exhibition Dates: Friday 3 June to Sunday 2 October 10am – 5pm weekdays 10am – 4.30pm weekend



MELTDOWN sets sails – our show will sail from New Zealand’s North to South Island

The exhibition has been shown all over the world and the show will open for the public later this week at WHIRINAKI WHARE TAONGA located on the North Island, next the locally produced exhibition is set to sail from the North Island in New Zealand (Te Ika-a-Māu) to the South Island (Te Waipounamu).

After the show closes on 8th of May, a boat will take the entire exhibition on its journey from the first New Zealand Museum to the second in the South Island.

MELTDOWN is a sustainably produced and distributed exhibition tour. We have calculated all traveling, the material used in the exhibition – including the wooden frames, and carbon offset it all. MELTDOWN is also on show at this moment in Ljubljana.

Did you know? Since 2008 Project Pressure’s website has been hosted on servers powered by renewable energy.

How much CO2 is your favorite website producing?

The internet consumes an extreme amount of electricity, something that is often looked away from. Approximately 416.2TWh every year. To give you some perspective, that’s more than the entire United Kingdom. In fact, a site with 100,000 page views per month emits as much as 2,112kg of CO2 every year. Read more.

Travelling exhibition MELTDOWN to open after flooding

Project Pressure Meltdown Ljubliana

MELTDOWN – Visualizing the Climate Crisis by Project Pressure opening on the 18th of January at Galerija Jakopic, Ljubljana, Slovenia. Opening times: Tue – Sun, 10.00 am – 6.00 pm. Guided tours available.

MELTDOWN was originally scheduled to open in late 2021, but severe flooding in Ljubljana and across Europe caused by a record rainfall meant the gallery needed some work. A climate change exhibition suffering from climate crisis flooding – the irony is not lost on us. This sends a topical message about the urgency of the climate crisis, making this exhibition even more current.

MELTDOWN uses art as a positive touch-point for engaging with climate change. Glacier mass loss can be directly attributed to global heating and is therefore a key indicator of human induced climate change. The exhibition is an artistic narrative of the importance of glaciers told in a scientific, illustrative and poetic way and each artist has a unique take on the subject.

The exhibition has previously been shown at the Horniman Museum and Gardens in London and the Natural History Museum in Vienna.

Featured artists are: Renate Aller (DE), Corey Arnold (US), Michael Benson (US), Broomberg & Chanarin (RSA/UK), Edward Burtynsky (CA), Scott Conarroe (CA), Peter Funch (DK), Noémie Goudal (FR), Adam Hinton (UK), Richard Mosse (IRE), Simon Norfolk (NG), Christopher Parsons (UK), Erik Schytt Holmlund (SE), Toby Smith (UK) and Klaus Thymann (DK).



Your voice leads to action – petition to classify greenhouse gases as pollutants



We all know that greenhouse gases pollute our planet. So why are the not regulated as pollutants?

What we call things matter. We should call toxic greenhouse gases, such as Carbon dioxide and methane, what they really are: climate change pollutants, causing mass destruction, affecting both ecological systems and the livelihood of people around the globe

This linguistic change is crucial, as it can have far-reaching impact and prompt drastic systemic change. A legally-binding classification of these gases will push governments to drastically alter legislation, enforcing a stricter regulation on both public sector and corporate emissions.

Your voice matters. Our collective voice matter. The engagement and visible commitment from people around the world is crucial for attracting the attention of governments.

Let the politicians know that you hold them accountable – SIGN THE PETITION TODAY



Launching on public activism platform and its wording reads:

“I, a concerned citizen, worried about the destructive and polluting nature of toxic greenhouse gases, demand that they be classified as pollutants.


I implore my government to classify them as such, empowering it to take action against their emission and take a leading global role in encouraging other countries to follow suit.”



Stay tuned as Project Pressure releases a vital petition


Project Pressure is launching a petition to classify greenhouse gases, in particular CO2 and Methane, as pollutants. The petition will launch alongside Street Level Photoworks’ exhibition Forever Changes in Glasgow.

Forever Changes brings together a range of artists from Nordic countries whose work aligns with climate change and protection of the planet. Forever Changes starts on October 30 and runs until January 30, 2022. The exhibition is a call to action and addresses the urgent need for action.

Stay tuned for the petition as it will launch soon.
