Tara Cooper – Weather Girl

A blog about the on-going Weather Girl project.


Find me on...

These are some collage I made during a recent residency in Brigus, Newfoundland. The residency is sponsored by The Rooms and Landfall Trust.

"Be down in the lobby in 8 minutes, we’re going on a pre-chase… now." Our storm chasing trip officially starts today, but things looked promising in terms of severe thunderstorms. Here’s a shot of lightning we took overlooking a farmer’s field in Wyoming. 

The Science of a Thunderhead addresses the impact of severe weather that occurs each spring in North America. Best known for producing severe meteorological outcomes such as hail, tornadoes, lightning and flash floods, these cumulonimbus storm clouds tower to heights of 50 000 feet. Marking the beginning of the storm season, this installation highlights the science and visual poetics of a storm cloud through drawing and sculpture. It is on view through Roadside Atrractions until June 7th.
