STRANGE WEATHER: Adapting

July 28, 2014

ADAPTING:
Weather is something we react to everyday, in the clothes we wear, the transport we take and food we eat. If it suddenly begins to rain we get an umbrella or seek shelter. Strange weather makes us act strangely. We don’t expect to wake up to a city underwater or live through a drought that lasts decades. We find ourselves in novel situations, lacking
familiar tools or habits that we can employ successfully without thinking too deeply. When anomalous events happen more frequently, we have to change our ways—developing new behaviours, artefacts and ways of existing in the world. Sustained strange weather requires planned change or adaptation. The exhibits in this section prototype new ways of being, focusing particularly on the new psychologies and societies we can imagine for ourselves in the face of significant disruptions and changes.
