“This artistic provocation seeks to highlight the planetary processes that are obscured in the shadow of GDP economic growth, such as fossil fuel combustion and the social costs of CO2 emissions. ShadowGrowth prototypes strategies that can challenge or replace the iconic GDP growth curve to better address today’s urgent ecosystemic challenges. ShadowGrowth confronts conventional GDP with the inherent “social cost of carbon emissions”, a cost which the most ethical estimates situate between $2.7k to $200k per ton of CO2-eq in long-term damage to society (Archer et al., “The Ultimate Cost of Carbon”, 2020)”
