Weather world: Material Realities through Sound, Image and Place

Over the years I have collected a sizable body of recordings (sound and
video clips), many of which have found their way into various documents,
installations and films. While the outcomes are works that can be shared
and presented, it is the living process that I devote the most effort
to. This process, what we can generally call ‘field work’, combines
methods of observation, intervention and artistic creation that draws
heavily on the cultural, material and meteorological aspects of the
locations I work in. In this talk I would like to share details of this
work process and how it relates to the media productions surrounding my
current topics of interest, microcosms of culture and the environments
of the north in conditions of a changing global climate.

John Grzinich (US/Estonia) has worked since the early 1990s as an artist
and cultural coordinator with various practices combining sound, moving
image, site-specificity, and collaborative social structures. He has
performed and exhibited in North America, Europe and Japan and his
compositions have been published on a host of international labels. He
lives in Estonia and works as a program coordinator for MoKS artist-run
