The uncertainties of air
and the interactive possibilities of clouds – both real and virtual. The atmospheric
matter and the assemblage of data present a new kind of environmental consciousness connected by the cloud. Art, science and
technology merge into multisensory experiences exposing philosophical, ecocritical and poetic connections in the atmosphere. This talk expands on Josefina Nelimarkka’s research and process-based works.
Supersaturation, Josefina Nelimarkka
Nelimarkka is an interdisciplinary artist. In her work she explores the in/visible and its perception in relation
to the politics of air and future scenarios of climate change in collaboration with climate scientists, paleoclimatologists
and nanoengineers. Continuous process, performativity and real-time climate data bring forth the momentary time and the sensitivity
of the environment.
Josefina Nelimarkka was the artist in residence at SPACE Art + Technology in
London 2018-19. She graduated from Royal College of Art in London and Academy of Fine Arts Helsinki. Recent projects at The
Finnish Institute in London, HAM Helsinki Art Museum, Techfestival Copenhagen, Solid Art in Taiwan, Jönköping City Library,
super/collider, London School of Economics, Titanik and Mansions of the Future among other galleries and sites.
