This event is part of our Past Programme

Watch open-weather (Sophie Dyer and Sasha Engelmann) in a talk about the artwork “When I image the earth, I imagine another”: a collective image of the earth and its weather systems created on the occasion of COP26 by a network of people operating DIY satellite ground stations around the world. The talk explored the role of an artistic, feminist framework in co-producing a polyperspectival (from many angles) image of earth and offer insight into the technical and collaborative process behind the work.

'When I image the earth, I imagine another' forms part of a programme of activities to coincide with the COP26 climate meeting in partnership with CCIC Tabakalera, in Donostia - San Sebastián, Spain.

Screen Walks is a new series of live-streamed artist/researcher-led explorations of online spaces and artistic strategies designed to illuminate a thriving – often overlooked – digital cultural scene. A new online collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery, UK and Fotomuseum Winterthur, Switzerland.

Biography

Open-weather is a feminist experiment in imaging and imagining the earth and its weather systems using DIY community tools. Co-led by researcher-designer Sophie Dyer and creative geographer Sasha Engelmann, open-weather encompasses a series of how-to guides, critical frameworks and public workshops on the reception of satellite images using free or inexpensive amateur radio technologies. In the tradition of intersectional feminism, open-weather investigates the politics of location and interlocking oppressions that shape our capacities to observe, negotiate, and respond to the climate crisis. In doing so, open-weather challenges dominant representations of earth and environment while complicating ideas of the weather beyond the meteorological.
