Sound Installation

Artangel present - A Thousand Words for Weather

Mon-Thu: 9-8:45pm; Fri: 9:45-6:15; Sat: 9:45-5:15pm

A Thousand Words for Weather is a new sound installation and exhibition taking place inside London’s iconic Senate House Library. Featuring thousands of words describing the weather in ten languages spoken across the city, the installation responds to live weather data from the Met Office and explores how we communicate about the environment. Created as a collaboration between writer Jessica J Lee and sound artist Claudia Molitor.

The installation is the first project to launch as part of the World Weather Network, a ground-breaking new alliance of artists and writers formed by Artangel and 27 cultural organisations from around the world, each reporting on local environmental changes and presenting physical and online artistic projects.

Tickets: £5.00
