“Forecast Factory” Exhibition, Society of Antiquaries, London

Activity: Public engagement and outreachFestival/Exhibition

Dr Kathryn Yusoff - Contributor


This exhibition of rapid-prototyped snow globes accompanies the book, Bipolar. The snow globes feature scenes of geo-engineering technologies, which are presented through the snow globe as a type of "philosophical furniture." These snow globes, which are accompanied by an informative pamphlet, enable reflection on the controversies related to large-scale planetary modification in order to address climate change. They further focus attention on the ways in which technological solutions for environmental issues often supplant or are offered in place of political and creative engagements. This exhibition and research project was conducted by Jennifer Gabrys through the creative research group, Weather Permitting.
