For the exhibition "Temporary Truth" at Milliken Gallery in Stockholm, 2010, Bigert & Bergström has created an elaborate three-part, divided-room installation that addresses the elusiveness of scientific truth. Using the weather as its vantage point, the exhibition focuses on the prognosis and forecasting of our climatic future and how these future scenarios have changed over time.
The main work in the exhibition is titled Tomorrow’s Weather, Stockholm. It consists of a cluster of atmospheric molecules radiating different lights and colors depending on tomorrow’s weather forecast. Connected to the Swedish Weather Forecast Bureau (SMHI), the work, updated every hour, uses different light scenarios to depict tomorrow’s weather—i.e., overcast, sunny, snowy, etc. In the middle of the molecules hangs a single globe that signals the temperature by moving up and down and changing between blue and red. As the work is always postponed one day into the future and constantly transforms itself, it reaches beyond the contemporary and instead manifests itself as a futurespective work of art.
