Let’s talk about the weather (2019)
Single channel video installation, 12:07 min, loop
A video explores a desire to control one’s surrounding environment and predict the future. A fictional weather forecast introduces the viewer through a succesion of weather events—rain, wind or growth of grass—and different emotional states. In this work Aleksaite combines Beaufort`s scale of wind with a David R. Hawkins scale of emotions: High vibrating emotions come together with a light wind and the wind gets stronger as the emotions as anger or shame come along.
