The AIR Program Presents
Weather You Remember
DATE: Thursday September 27th, 2007
TIME: 7pm
WHERE: The Godine Gallery @ The Massachusetts College of Art

Please join us and participate in the beginning stages of Maura Jasper's Weather You Remember project, an online collection of "weather reports" delivered by senior citizens as they recall and comment on weather for the location they most identify as "home". Relying only on personal experience and memory, participants in this project are asked to consider cultural, climate, economic and other changes they have witnessed as indicators of present and future "weather" conditions. Using the same "bluescreen" technique employed in standard televised weather reporting, participants are video taped in front of hand drawn animated maps that reference the experiences and points of interest they are discussing.

We are bringing this event to the Godine Family Gallery @ MassArt for the first time. Please follow the signs and enter MassArt through the North Building entrance on Evans Way.

We'll see you there!

The Berwick Research Institute is a 501c3 non-profit art organization composed of individual artists, writers, musicians and cultural workers . The Berwick's mission is to support artists and projects that require investigation, dialogue, and support from an artistic community.

The Artist-in-Research program seeks to support artists involved in the early stages of projects that require investigation, dialogue, and support from an artistic community.
