The increased severity and frequency of extreme weather events, including recent years’ tropical storm systems, droughts and heat waves, are largely the result of human-induced climate change. In addition to widespread damage across the Atlantic seaside, Sandy’s flooding in New York’s Zone A confronted many artists and galleries directly with the reality of their environment, bringing undeniable gravity to a crisis that often seems distant. Decades of postponement and self-deceit will have to come to a close. But what comes next?
As artists and hackers, less constrained by the limitations of institutional science - what is our place and purpose within this shift? The deluge is not merely literal: we are awash in technology that threatens to subsume us. As creators of software and ideas, can we weave data into compelling narratives? As creators of material objects, can we modify our existing fabrication methods in a way that is not detrimental – perhaps even beneficial – to our environment and ultimately ourselves? Can we explore novel engagements and collaborations with nature itself?
