Through the Weather Glass

What if we can’t solve climate change? What if, instead of staring at our reflections in the weather glass, we travelled through everything we know about climate change and participated in the world beyond?

This interactive installation combines a bike-generator, an animated film and a large set of willow wings. Participants are invited to pedal their own way through the weather glass and to craft some poetry wings to help Icarus fly!

Lucy Burnett’s hybrid novel Through the Weather Glass tells a fantastic version of the author’s struggles to understand environmental change through the persona of Icarus during a 2,500 mile cycle to the Greek island where Icarus fell.
