Weather is part of the atmospheric envelope in which we sustain our lives, providing the circumstances for our survival. The magnitude of “climate change” is so overwhelming that one can only waver in anxiety and helplessness, which Donna Haraway calls “indecisive agitation”. Therefore, we hope to examine meteorology as an instrument for participatory art to produce dialogue through material artifacts and concepts in light of the obstinate fact of climate change.
The project considers weather as an artist‘s medium that connects us to the world and each other through the air, water, and sunlight that carry sensations to our human and machinic receptors. Participating artists translated meteorological data and embodied sensory through transmedia narratives to reposition and understand the relationship between humans, nonhumans, and the environment we currently find ourselves living in.
