Built on giant carbon feet, the viaduct is a monument to climate changeour Roman aqueduct, sending carbon like water to quench the empire's thirst. Climate change has many facts to connect and our very human brains want to decipher the patterns in poetry, music, humor, dance, in the quandaries of a society speeding headlong into an uncertainty where we may collide with ourselves.
