Glasgow Program

The hackathon in Glasgow in November 2020 was designed as an interdisciplinary artistic research process with the goal of investigating how we relate or un-relate to weather. Do we fully understand that the extreme weather conditions we are experiencing depend on climate change? If so, how do we express this connection and can it be done by relating data on weather and climate with art?

Key questions for the hackathon

Why do we communicate about the weather?

How do we communicate weather?

Why predicting the weather?

How do we predict it?

Feelings

Images

Sound

Stories

Data

How do we relate to weather conditions and changes in an urban context and a rural context?

What kind of historical and contemporary data can be used in order to visualise weather conditions and climate change?
