Bibigloo

2 09 2013

With climate change already melting away many arctic habitats, French artist Bibi wondered how long it would be before native Inuits would be forced to leave their homes. Bibigloo is the vocalization of those concerns through eco art. Bibi calls the glowing, red igloo made of recycled water jugs an “architectural postmodernist inuit concept.”

“The Bibigloo is both a work of land art, design, light source and a plastic art installation,” writes Bibi of his work. “It is a habitat type polyethylene igloo to replace the 20th century igloo traditionally made of ice. Indeed, following the thawing of the ice, innovative solutions must be found to relocate the Inuit people.”
