IOTA: DATA presents the commission ‘This is a Picture of Wind’ by J.R. Carpenter

IOTA Institute has taken on a commissioning project inviting artists J.R. Carpenter (UK), Jennifer Chan (Ontario), and Liz Solo (Newfoundland) to produce new web-projects.

J.R. Carpenter’s “This is A Picture of Wind” will expand upon a short text written in response to the storms which battered South West England in early 2014. She will look at the paradox presented by wind: how difficult it is to evoke through the materiality of language a force we can only see through its affect. This work will aim to address climate change by picturing through language and data the vast absences left by wind’s wake.
