The Weather War Film Screening

June 26, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

free and open to the public

Join us for a special screening of The Weather War, a documentary art film illustrating man’s attempts  to control the weather and harness it for his own purposes. In a blend of land art performance and road movie, Swedish artist duo Bigert & Bergström embark on a mission to stop a tornado with a contraption of their own invention. At the end of May 2011, the artists traveled to the United States Mid-West together with Canadian meteorologist and storm chaser Mark Robinson. Their goal was to hunt down a tornado and place an invention -The Tornado Stopper – in front of the approaching twister. This sculptural machine, built on a theory by Russian scientist Vladimir Pudov, radiates 100,000 negative volts and had the power to repel the positive charge of the tornado that causes twisters to touch down.
