STRANGE WEATHER: Mitigating

July 27, 2014

MITIGATING
This is where things get very unusual indeed. Desperate times call for desperate measures and strange weather calls for creative mitigation strategies. This collection of tools and narratives ranges in tone from celebratory to cynical. Each artist in this section constructs a future where humankind attempts to use technology to directly intervene
in the weather patterns on planet Earth. Although humans have informally and inadvertently manipulated the weather since at least the dawn of agriculture, and definitely since the large scale burning of fossil fuels, these projects ask what happens when we start trying to shape the
weather and control the climate intentionally, continuously and with specific outcomes in mind. The story of climate mitigation is only just beginning, but thus far we have learned: we have always been geoengineers and we have not been very good at it.
