Towards a meteorological art - Janine Randerson

From Standing Room Only, 2:49 pm on 2 December 2018

As climate change becomes increasingly critical, artists are turning to the weather as both subject and material.  

We talk and sing about it endlessly but until recently its not been particularly known as a subject for our art. Auckland artist and academic Janine Randerson is setting out to change all that  -  she has recognised that the weather is increasingly become the subject of - and indeed sometimes a key material ingredient of - a lot of art. 

Janine has just published a book of historical and contemporary examples. It's called Weather as Medium: Towards a Metereological Art published by MIT Press.

Our image gallery here includes some examples from Janine's book.
