WEATHER WARNING (· · · – – – · · ·)
23 Nov to 15 Dec 2018
Weather Warning (· · · – – – · · ·) is sending out a signal. It’s been sending it out for days, weeks, years, and let’s face it, probably decades. But we aren’t listening.
We seem to be constantly trying to predict the natural phenomena while at the same time refusing to listen to its warning signs.
Weather Warning (· · · – – – · · ·) is a mixed media installation featuring an illuminated cloud form which sends out pulses of light in the SOS distress signal (Morse code) – a continuous sequence of three dots, three dashes, and three dots (· · · – – – · · ·). The signal was adopted as the international distress code in the early 20th century, allowing it to transcend borders, languages and timezones.
It is a dream-like work which aims to pull the viewer into a dialogue with imagination and the natural world, which humans like to see as distinctly separate from their own.
This work is the result of a process-driven exploration into sculptural experimentation and activation. The artist makes narrative-based work investigating the border between reality and imagination and is interested in the replication of naturally occurring forms through “un-natural” or woman-made methods.
