On the eve of the Climate Conference COP23 in Bonn 2,800 people came together at Pathway to Paris in Carnegie Hall, New York. Pathway to Paris is a collaboration between musicians, artists, sustainability consultants, cities and activists to highlight solutions to climate change, and to help turn the Paris Agreement into real action. This video documents a collective artwork conducted by Olafur Eliasson with Little Sun solar powered lamps during the event

Orange and red shades indicate areas that lost ice mass, while light blue shades indicate areas that gained ice mass. White indicates areas where there has been very little or no change in ice mass since 2002
