Weathering

Weathering explores the maps and symbolic systems of meteorology. I worked with senior meteorologist Uwe Gramann as a mentor. I am interested in the complexity and metaphoric potential of this discipline. With the assistance of a BC Arts Council Grant, I have also made a short (3 minute) animated piece to accompany the exhibition: https://vimeo.com/137759215

My essay Embroidered Meteorology was included in Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal.

The Beaufort Scale was devised by Sir Francis Beaufort in 1805 to describe the wind speed by how the sea looks. I have embroidered the waves, added the km per hour and collected Newfoundlander's idioms and sayings to do with wind.
