Artlink was proud and excited to be part of The Weather Cafe throughout January – March 2016. Artlink groups, Studio 3 and LiLAC, provided some of the voice recordings and the abstracts for this immersive experience as well as hosting two events on site.
The Weather Cafe is created by international artist David Shearing. This unique and intriguing experience responded to the ever changing weather of the city. Visitors were treated to exotic teas reflecting their moods, whilst rain fell, clouds drifted by and real grass lay beneath their feet, all whilst listening to the voices of over 100 people living in Leeds. This was a space in which to reflect and contemplate, a real oasis of calm in the heart of a bustling city.
