/The Doomsday Clock is a symbol that represents the likelihood of a man-made global catastrophe./Maintained since 1947 by the members of the Bulletin Of Atomic Scientists./The Clock is a metaphor for threats to humanity from unchecked scientific and technical advances./It represents the hypothetical global catastrophe as "midnight" and the Bulletin's opinion/on how close the world is to a global catastrophe as a number of "minutes" to midnight, assessed/in January of each year. The main factors influencing the Clock are nuclear rish and climate change./The Bulletin's Science and Security Board also monitorsnew developments in the life sciences and/technology that could inflict irrevocable harm to humanity. On January 23rd 2020 the clock was set at 100/seconds to midnight making it the closest it's been set to midnight since it's creation in 1947./

The 2019-2020 bushfire season had a catastrophic effect on the residents, infrastructure, and unique ecosystems of Queensland, with more than 7 million hectares burnt across the state. This collection of 41 posters documents community reactions to a significant event in Queensland’s history and contributes to a contemporary and ongoing narrative about climate change and activism in Australia.
