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.
