Susan Schuppli – Atmospheric Feedback Loops

Premiere Sonic Acts Festival 23 February 2017 Paradiso, Amsterdam, NL www.sonicacts.com

Since 1970 the Cabauw Experimental Site for Atmospheric Research has been measuring and monitoring the changes in the feedback loops between land surface processes and the airborne dynamics of our planet, studying the ways in which the complex behaviour of clouds, aerosols, radiation, precipitation and turbulence interact with terrestrial events. The scientists working here are producing an extraordinarily comprehensive and evolving dataset — a natural media archive — that feeds Dutch light and sound back into the global climate model. Susan Schuppli (UK) is an artist and researcher based in London whose work examines material evidence from war and conflict to environmental disasters. Current work explores the ways in which toxic ecologies from nuclear accidents and oil spills to the dark snow of the arctic are producing an “extreme image” archive of material wrongs. Creative projects have been exhibited throughout Canada, the US, Europe and Asia. She is Senior Lecturer and Deputy Director of the Centre for Research Architecture, Goldsmiths. www.susanschuppli.com
