The Nobel Prize Summit has invited artist & UN Women innovation role model Beatie Wolfe to speak, perform, and preview her environmental protest piece ‘From Green to Red,’ built using 800,000 years of our planet’s climate data (specifically atmospheric CO2 levels). This inaugural summit, titled ‘Our Future, Our Planet,’ will be hosted by the National Academy of Sciences out of Washington DC. On the opening day, April 26th, Beatie Wolfe’s session follows Sir David Attenborough and Al Gore (both of whom have played a major part in shaping Beatie’s work) at 11 am ET. For her segment, Beatie’s friend and space collaborator Nobel Laureate Robert Wilson will be introducing Beatie onstage.
Following Dr Wilson’s introduction Beatie Wolfe will talk about creating ‘world first’ formats for art in the digital age and present her latest innovation ‘From Green to Red,’ which takes the audience on a dynamic journey through the planet’s timeline and human impact, before closing with a live performance.

Following the Nobel Prize Summit, Beatie Wolfe’s ‘From Green to Red’ (produced in collaboration with The Mill) will be exhibited at the London Design Biennale in Somerset House throughout June 2021.
“This piece is about representing data in a way that people can literally see differently, using the power of art and music to make it evocative and relatable,” Wolfe says, “so that people can really get a sense of where we are right now.”
