Workshop in collaboration with ECAM
In this session the weather is considered as an object of study and of governance, and weather-thinking a mode of relating to our surroundings and of performative world-making. In recent years the atmosphere have become common as a model of informational, affective, or political environments, and a mode of thinking about their constitution and control through networked, diffused, invisible and conditioning influences. Weather-thinking, through its unruly, local, and uncontrollable character, in addition foregrounds heterogeneity and embodiedness of social engagements with environments, and better captures their creative, disruptive, impassioned and troublesome dimensions in a way that leaves room open for intervention and surprise.
In this 3-part dialogue we discuss various ways of mediating and intervening in people’s relations with environments.
