The Weerkas is an ironic commentary on changing weather patterns in the Netherlands. Each image illustrates a specific geographic location in one of the Netherlands’ twelve provinces, in one month of the year. The drawings express a shift in weather conditions, and speculate the social and economic implications of climate change on the Dutch landscape. The small Weerkas interventions act as a didactic ‘follies’, expressing the increasing disparity between historic, normative climate cycles and emerging weather conditions. These weather anomalies will have a dramatic affect on the country’s economic and cultural future.
These projected drawings are afforded new spatiality in Vienna, re-drawing the images to a new space, for a new time. In this evolving operative capacity, the drawings are actualized, not as images of architectural forms in the landscape, but as architectural lines forming space.
