We are obsessed with the weather. It is a powerful, shared daily experience, offering us an immediate talking point with which to engage our fellow citizens. Yet when we talk about climate change the sense of guilt or powerlessness is enough to kill the conversation.
By engaging both weather and climate in a playful, provocative way, we hope to leapfrog over current polarised public debates. STRANGE WEATHER: FORECASTS FROM THE FUTURE propels you to forecast your own fate on a changing planet with an uncertain future.
By bringing together works by artists, designers, scientists, meteorologists and engineers STRANGE WEATHER asks questions such as: Should human culture be reshaped to fit strange weather or should we reshape weather to fit our strange culture? Who is going to take advantage of climate chaos and how will strange weather benefit me? How will you choose to work, celebrate, live and die when weather gets weird?
STRANGE WEATHER runs from 18th July 2014 to 8th October 2014. Find out more at https://dublin.sciencegallery.com/strangeweather
