FRED, Ullswater, Cumbria, England, October 2007
As part of FRED, The Annual Art Invasion of Cumbria, The Weather Cube was sited on Ullswater Lake in the iconic English Lake District.
The lake district is an interesting example of an administered natural landscape, having been restored from industrial exploitation (lead mining in Ullswater) during the romantic period in the nineteenth century. The Weather Cube was sited here and envisioned as a contemplative structure from which to reflect upon an apparently timeless, and natural environment which is actually dynamic and in a state of change.
