Purple is an immersive six-channel video installation addressing the future of planet Earth and of mankind, by British artist John Akomfrah. At a time when greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are at historical levels and glaciers are melting, Purple poses the question of human responsibility. In this epic film work, archival film is combined with newly staged footage and a hypnotic sound score.
