Screenspace
Installation, Rice Architecture, January 2021
Screenspace is a temporary installation for collective weather-watching. It re-interprets James Turrell’s climate-ambivalent Skyspace in Houston, for more turbulent skies. Today, our prevalent sky-monitoring optic is that of the infrared satellite image: used to capture both fast and slow temporalities of weather and climate. The 16:9 aspect-ratio regulates a large blackout fabric cloud, suspended overhead for upward projection. Slightly baggy, it may be the first screen to acknowledge gravity.

Plug-and-play: faux berm recliners take variable configurations under this projection canopy, and can be wheeled outside in good weather. Sunrise and Sunset screenings feature stock sky screensavers and weather channel footage, spliced with Houston’s past hurricane infrared imagery.
