Seizing Hold of a Memory as It Flashes Up is a blind embossed print using the speech of twelve-year old Severn Suzuki, daughter of Japanese Canadian science broadcaster and environmental activist David Suzuki, delivered at the 1992 Earth Summit. In 1992 Ms. Suzuki, together with her friends and members of the Environmental Children’s Organization, fundraised the money to travel from Vancouver to Brazil, so they could attend the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro. At the Earth Summit, Severn Suzuki delivered her speech before 172 representatives of different countries, 108 heads of state or government and some 2400 representatives of non-governmental organisations. This meeting of the UN was of particular significance because it led to the Kyoto Protocol.
