“Words of Weather: A Glossary” (companion publication to ‘Weather Engines’ exhibition)

The art exhibition Weather Engines, which is curated by Daphne Dragona and Jussi Parikka, is running until the 15th of May 2022 at Onassis Stegi in Athens. Edited by the curators, the publication Words of Weather: A Glossary complements the exhibition with entries by academics, artists, philosophers and architects. My entry Extremes in the volume relates to the impact and experience of extreme weather events. It draws upon my own bodily experience of being subjected to the forces of a mild tornado to reflect upon the scale of damage that extreme weather can wreak under accelerating conditions of climate change.
