WE ARE THE WEATHERS
Commission / funded group project (residency, events and festival). 1 July – 31 August 2023 (upcoming)
ALTER- (Altitude Laboratory Transition Experiments Research) Switzerland
We are the Weathers – a TSOEG Team fieldwork programme
We are the Weathers is a counter-mapping project by members of the Temporal School of Experimental Geography (TSOEG). The project will use transdisciplinary fieldwork to explore the weather as a high mountain entity – we will investigate its shape-shifting characters, physical influences and event based performances. Drawing on local imaginaries and collective fieldwork we will remap the Val d’Anniviers to reflect the embodied presence of weather on the people, places, histories and futures of the Alpine landscape.
Research residency staying at ALTER- shared residence apartments / varied studio space provision / 2-month public programme with workshops, sharing events and final festival / working with artists, cultural agents, high mountain science centres and cultural spaces
