Climate Whirl Arts Program
Climate Whirl Arts Program is rooted in the cross-disciplinary research being done at the Helsinki University Hyytiälä forestry field station and SMEAR II station in Finland. The Arts Programme engages artists to interpret and disseminate scientific knowledge about the interactions between forests and the atmosphere. They specifically regard the influence that boreal forests have on the climate, and wish to enhance the dialogue between researchers and artists working at these stations. Neither research nor viewpoints are tied to certain disciplines or species. Instead, they look for encounters and interplay between sciences, arts, people, trees and other organisms.
Institute for Atmospheric and Earth System Research (INAR) is a multi- and interdisciplinary research unit based in physics, chemistry, meteorology, forest sciences, environmental sciences and social sciences in the University of Helsinki. INAR aims to strengthen the internationally leading, integrated multidisciplinary research and education environment for atmospheric and Earth system science and to feed in scientific results for the national and international environment and climate policy. It performs multiscale research from molecular to global scale and focuses on climate change, air quality, biogeochemical cycles and ecosystem processes.
There is no specific studios but depending on the needs, they try to arrange the ideal working space for the artist.
