Weather Patterns Project Information WEATHER PATTERNS A Personal Diary of Global Change "Initiated in 2011, Weather Patterns is a long-term project recording and marking events in the changing world climate system from a singular, constant location. Each day I am home I find my way to the edge of the ocean and make one photograph using a consistent set of parameters with focal length, aperture, framing, etc. This results in a vast archive of images. At a later date I draw on this archive to create the large scale composite works you see here. While some individual days appear as a milestone most of these emblematic compilations realize collections of days as a single work, enabling the viewer to see wide swaths of historical records...such as a month or a year...at a glance. As climate change advances and records fall with increasing regularity the construction of a photo-series that enforced bearing conscious witness to the changes occurring was of particular interest to me. Indeed, there now seems so many of these events occurring that it is a difficult task to keep track of them. This project enables a process of both memorial and witness. As the earth shifts into an anthropogenic, less hospitable climate, acknowledging and recording even a small part of the transition from what may be humanity's environmental 'Golden Age' seems a worthy task." - D.E.
