Weather is an expression of the true force of nature. Despite advances in technology, wind and rain delay our flights, snow closes our institutions, and overexposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays damages our DNA. Weather events change the face of our planet; the last ice age covered our northern hemisphere, Volcanic eruptions can lead to ash clouds which remain in our stratosphere for years, and hurricanes alter the shape of our coastlines. A major challenge in conceptualizing our future on other planets is the challenge of weather; in environments like Mars without rain, massive dust storms envelop the whole planet for weeks.
Despite the problems that it may cause us, the weather is often a joy of life. It is our favorite excuse to take the afternoon off, and provides some of Earth’s most breathtaking moments. The weather is ever-present, often dramatic, and always uncontrollable. Submissions for this exhibition cover the topics of studying, understanding, and experiencing the weather.
