From aurora to geospace

Towards Atmospheric Care

Östra Galleriet, Royal Academy of Fine Arts, 2020.

Through a focus on the ionospheric radar infrastructures located in arctic Fennoscandia, ‘From Aurora to Geospace’ explores how historical interest in visible atmospheric phenomena, notably the aurora borealis, has contributed to the uncovering of invisible processes, and regions of near-Earth space, that are made perceptible only with the help of geoscience. Rather than observing atmospheric phenomena as such, the work explores the instruments, historical circumstances, events and ideas that make them visible and thereby contribute to the construction of novel atmospheric imaginaries and sensibilities.
