DIY Atmospheric Pressure: Weather Station
Sat 13 Sep | 14:25 - 16:25

An experiment in engaging with the liveness of place, through attempting to collaborate with one of it’s most unpredictable elements: the weather.

A group of artists explore possible strategies for collaborating with the weather as an agent for live art. Can we make a performance that can only happen if its raining? An installation that is only activated by the sun? An art tool kit for windy days?

Through play, practical experimentation and sensory experience, we will become human barometers as we respond to live weather conditions, attempting to harness and embrace the weather as a potential collaborator in the creation of live work.

The workshop will culminate in a weather specific performance laboratory between 14:25 and 16:25 on 13th September at Folkestone Harbour.
