The Actions of Storms
- August Carpenter

Mapping the loss of our natural environments, The Actions of Storms provides record to current and past climate events in both physical and abstract landscapes, and continues to imagine the chaotic phenomenon of human influence, and what is to come.

This body of work constructs a new landscape archive, forging documented spaces with those unexplored and imagined, in order to facilitate the adaptive reconsidering of place and of what it means to exist in our current state of climate collapse. The rapid rise of extreme weather events, and a distress born of the loss of our natural environments, is explored through a series of monotypes, depicting both the static calm and the chaos of such events.

Physical forms take reference to wave movements, glacial coastlines, rising sea levels and a-typical weather patterns in addition to observations made of environmental changes across the Antarctic landscape (State Library Victoria archives, 1911 – current), and the rapid increase of climate events worldwide.
