The Scream from Nature is an environmental art project which aims to raise consciousness about the relationship between humans and nature. The project is a contemporary interpretation of Munch’s masterpiece The Scream, in which the iconic anxiety-ridden face is recreated outdoors in large format. Edvard Munch wrote several texts about The Scream motif, the most poignant among these being: “I was walking along the road with two friends. The sun was setting. Suddenly the sky turned blood red and I felt a huge unending scream course through nature”. Now, over 100 years later, we hear another “scream” from nature: droughts, forest fires, floods, earth slides, extreme weather, melting glaciers, rising ocean levels and massive extinctions of animal and plant species are just some of the huge challenges the world faces today.

Measuring 70 x 50 meters, and with the sound of approximately 4.000 people actually screaming, the Scream from Nature was both large and loud!

This project is initiated by Norwegian artist Lise Wulff. It was part of the official celebration of Edvard Munch’s 150 anniversary and it is done in collaboration with Bellona and PureCSR.

Screams have been made all over the world. Everyone is invited to make a Scream from Nature and share it on Facebook and Instagram. You can see other screams on http://thescreamfromnature.com
