Anne Hardy -The Weather Garden

As part of Anne Hardy’s curation of an exhibition of works from the Arts Council collection at Towner Art Gallery I programmed an automated sequencing of the gallery lighting, triggered by historic weather data. Plugging in to the installed lighting, a standalone computer sent control signals which varied the intensity of the overhead lights, creating a rhythm of light in which the displayed works were viewed.
