“Weather Engines” explores the poetics, politics, and technologies of the environment from the ground to the sky, and from soil to atmosphere.
“Weather Engines” is an art exhibition and a program of talks, performances and workshops taking place at Onassis Stegi and the National Observatory of Athens (Thissio). It explores weather as a complex system, as observation and control, and as a lived experience.
The projects and events refer to natural phenomena and climate change, past and contemporary strategies of weather engineering, as well as to different sociopolitical atmospheres related to breathing and living. Approaching the models and systems of art as techniques of knowledge, “Weather Engines” addresses the need for climate justice, and for embracing the surrounding more-than-human world(s).
The exhibition is accompanied by the publication “Words of Weather: A glossary” that maps terms for a political ecology of experience.
