Reception: Tuesday Nov. 17, 6:30pm:
Cambridge Galleries, Design at Riverside
Snow, Rain, Light, Wind: Weathering Architecture is an investigation of material innovation that is intended to generate awareness of issues in architecture related to climate change. The exhibition documents the application of weather-sensitive, textile-based prototypes onto various built structures and the response of these "building skins" to weather elements. The interior exhibition will include multiple video projects, lenticular photographs and textile prototypes. The exterior installation will consist of a multi-layered 10' x 20' light reflective "skin". The work, affected by the shifting of light levels, is comprised of notes from a weather diary written by the artist, as well as 100 years of weather data gathered from the City of Cambridge.
