Artist Talk: theweathergroup_U
from 04:30 PM to 05:30 PM
theweathergroup_U is a collective interested in pursuing experimental methods of audio-visual media production, environmental mapping and monitoring technologies, and processes of community-based interaction and knowledge exchange. As artists and media workers, they are primarily concerned with cross-cultural digital storytelling methods. Using the interlocking themes of weather, ecology, climate, geography, communications and collaboration, they seek to explore different ways of seeing, listening and documenting the interactions with natural systems that punctuate our daily existence. theweathergroup_U seeks to examine how people from differing social and cultural backgrounds can connect with and further understand the environmental and ecological systems that surround them. Members of the group come from a range of professional and experiential backgrounds. They include Susan Norrie, David Mackenzie, Bryce Anbinis-King, Sumugan Sivanesan, Dr Jeremy Walker, Will Tinapple and Danielle Green.
