The People's Weather Report (2014)
A short radio work composed for Arts House's Going Nowhere event in November 2014. Subsequently re-broadcast on Radio National's Soundproof

Climate change is one of the most pressing issues facing the world – now more than ever. Last year was one of the hottest on record internationally, but the sceptics keep pumping their rhetoric into the atmosphere, almost as fast and furiously as we’re polluting it. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude and reality of it all, or flummoxed by the polarising conversations. What can we do to make a difference?

The People’s Weather Report is a global response to the enormity of climate change, from a number of very personal perspectives. In a plant installation created by eco-designer Tanja Beer, audiences are invited to experience a sound work of original ‘weather reports’ collected from participants located around the world. - Tanja Beer & Nick Roux
