Aiming to provoke contemplation and wonder, Between Stillness and Storm presents a large-scale sculptural installation generating audio and visual responses to changing weather conditions, in daylight and at night. Developed in response to the festival site, the beautiful, kinetic sculptural form of anemometers will make up the core architecture of the work. Triggering personal responses and referencing cultural precedents, for example from related literature, Between Stillness and Storm provides an intergenerational and accessible platform for further exploration of how the weather and our state of mind are inextricably linked.
