View looking up at the Socrates Weather Station

SP Weather Station, co-founded by artists Heidi Neilson and Natalie Campbell, is an interdisciplinary project which has organized and participated in many weather-related publications, events, and exhibitions since 2007. The new weather station installation at Socrates will serve as a hub for new environment-related workshops and educational activities while contributing weather data to online networks.

WEATHER STATION NAMING CONTEST!

Many submitted their best suggestions to @socratespark but there’s only one SP Weather Station to name. The winning name, inaugurated during Queens Green Day: Dirtfest 2022

is….

THE SKY TICKLER!

Submitted by Nicole Brancato (@n.brancato), Nicole had the honor of inaugurating the station by shooting a water gun. The realtime SP Weather report on our Wunderground page showed a cooling down in temperature a few minutes later. Congratulations Nicole and welcome The Sky Tickler!

EDUCATION

The Field Guide series will use The Sky Tickler to explore art making and the natural world with artist and facilitator Heidi Neilson. Our AH-YES participants will also use the weather station to monitor the climate, air and soil quality this summer.

We seek to:

  • Learn how to analyze data collected from our new hyper local Park weather station and what that tells us about our current climate (and climate futures!)
  • Explore ways in using data to create art- in traditional and new media
  • Create informed projects and processes at the Park for a sustainable future
  • Collaborate with fellow weather-enthusiasts and become part of a collective weather movement
