Climate Data and Art, Part 1 - The Tempestry Project and Jill Pelto

63 minutes

This episode of Warm Regards, the first of two on the intersections of climate data and art, will feature conversations with Emily McNeil and Justin Connolly, founders of the Tempestry Project, which uses climate data to create patterns that people can knit into scarves and tapestries, and Jill Pelto, a visual artist who incorporates climate data into a variety of natural landscapes. First, though, some thoughts on the US presidential election from our very relieved hosts.
