Solo exhibition, Titanik, 2021
Supersaturation takes the viewer towards the possibilities of a cloud – both real and virtual. The body of work is an endless process: every moment is connected to the ongoing cloud formation. The video- and sound installation is transformed by information that is measured and filmed directly from the atmosphere. The gallery space fills with glass sculptures, transparent poetics and climate data technology.
Air, pixel, word and sound condense, accumulate and evaporate. The uncertainty which describes the cloud shifts into sensory experientiality through a flux of datasignals and colours. The exhibition speaks for multiple saturation phenomena moving across climate and society with a process tied to the environment and immersed by colour. Supersaturation is artistic research that combines art, climate science and data technology. Josefina Nelimarkka has worked on a long-term basis with climate scientists focusing on the complex questions and interactions related to the atmosphere and clouds.
Artistic research in collaboration with Institute for Atmospheric and Earth System Research INAR & Hyytiälä Forestry Field Station – Helsinki University.
