Projet: Weather Proof
Résumé, version intégrale du texte en anglais uniquement

La "lenteur" est au cœur du projet d'Antony Lyons. Dans la région de Ballybofey/Stranolar, un point d'observation (qui coincide avec une barrière traditionnelle d'un champ) sera choisi. Il sera le site de mesures scientifiques de la météorologie aussi bien de la part de l'artiste que d'un groupe d'observateurs locaux.

Project: Weather Proof
'Slowness' is the key to Antony Lyons' project. In the Ballybofey / Stranolar area, a look- out point, which is also an existing field-gate, will be selected. The site will be close to a location where scientific weather measurements (rainfall, humidity, temperature, pressure, wind speed, wind direction) are already being taken. This will become the site for year-long observation (by the artist and some observers). At the gate / look-out site, the artist's recordings will be highly personal weather-words/ weather-diaries recorded on paper and digitally with photos and sounds. The programmed visits by the artist will be supplemented by daily/weekly visits by members of a small volunteer observation team. Furthermore, there is the potential to extend the observer participation into the idea of a geo-caching trail, with weather-proof boxes located at points in the landscape.
