Into the blue Manchester - Cloud Crash exhibition

20 October 2016 - 3 February 2017 (10:00-17:00)
Museum of Science & Industry, Liverpool Road, Castlefield, Manchester, M3 4FP

As part of NERC's celebration of science, Into the blue, we have commissioned Cloud Crash, which is Cape Farewell's 2016 Lovelock Art Commission, by Paris-based artists HeHe. The pieces are part of the flagship events for the Manchester Science Festival.

The three new site-specific works take inspiration from our research in atmospheric science, as well as James Lovelock and the Museum of Science & Industry's collection.

In their engagement with the industrial landscape, HeHe blur the boundaries between natural and man-made clouds, depicting micro-climates and manufactured airspaces of artificially engineered clouds, in an imaginative appropriation of atmospheric cloud research.
