Abstract / Description of output

Building on Wind as Model, Media, and Experience, a transdisciplinary project that contributes to a better understanding of experiences of climate change through study of the medium of wind, past, present, and future, this panel asks: How is wind perceived? Taking this question as a starting point, this panel explores how wind is experienced across temporal and spatial scales, drawing on research and practice from across the Digital Literature, Environmental Humanities, Sound, and Media Studies. Wind focalises the larger epistemological and ontological problems we face in light of climate change. Like climate, wind surrounds us and is experienced continuously in varying degrees of intensity, yet wind is not an immediate, conspicuous object of perception. In order to make sense of the larger issue of climate crisis, we consider wind as something both experienced and measured, local and global. We explore the elemental media of wind through three different scales and elemental perspectives: oceanic, island, and air.
