Strange Climes includes three video artworks and two prints that respond with sensory cues that our world is undergoing rapid change. Digital and analogue media in the work of Andrew Denton and Janine Randerson probe the aberrant landscapes created by the warming climate to produce affective resonances. As fragile terrestrial and cryospheric landscapes rapidly become unrecognisable, these works operate to keep our climate emergency in the public eye.
Dr Janine Randerson is an artist, writer and academic at AUT University. She has collaborated with environmental scientists on media artworks in Denmark, Australia, and New Zealand. Her first book ‘Weather as Medium: Toward a Meteorological Art’ will be published by MIT Press in 2018.
Dr Andrew Denton is an academic at AUT, and a film and video artist who works with digital, analogue, and interactive time-based media, with a focus on the topic of ecological crisis. His moving image and photographic practice applies methods aligned with essayist cinema and video installation, as well as historical avant-garde film.
