Abstract

The concept of a “meteorological choreography” questions the boundaries between human and nonhuman actors onstage, calling for a broader engagement with the shift in human-nonhuman and nature-culture relations in the face of weather and climate catastrophes. Mette Ingvartsen’s The Artificial Nature Project, George Kuchar’s video series Weather Diaries, and the events of hurricane Katrina, reveal weather as historic, political, economic, ecological, geological, and meteorological movements in which human actions are radically decentered.
