Under the Weather:
Over the course of a week—Sunday May 20th to Sunday May 27th—Weather Girl (artist Tara Cooper’s alter ego) will be forecasting the weather on Toronto Island. Most of Bell Canada’s booths on the island are designed to shelter the phones; they leave callers exposed. Mirroring a desert island mentality, their structures’ imply communication needed for emergencies. Reflecting a similar need for lifelines, Under the Weather offers daily meteorological advice via seven different phone booths. Drawn in chalk the advice is impermanent; it is susceptible to inclement weather. Although it still costs money to make a call, Weather Girl’s advice is free. 

This is a part of the Tel Talk project; here is a link to the blog:


TH&B Collective presents: 

TH&B2 located in a 30 000 square foot warehouse space (formerly a textile mill), Hamilton, Ontario. The opening is tonight from 8:00 pm on, but the show runs until May 12, 2012. Weather Girl is one of 18 artists occupying the space. Drop by if you’re anywhere near Hamilton.

Last fall, Meghan visited Weather Girl’s installation at Nuit Blanche. The experience prompted her to write and record a song, which is featured on her upcoming album. Check out her youtube video!

According to the NOAA, the odds of being struck by lightning in your lifetime are 1:6250.
