The Effect of Cannonry on Thunderclouds


The Effect of Cannonry on Thunderclouds


2016 saw the highest number of potential tornadoes since the beginning of weather recordkeeping in Germany. Likewise, there is a deluge of weather tropes on the internet, on television, and on the news: shit storms, data floods, refugee waves. Language, metaphors, and images are instruments of control. They are used to dispel—and to produce­—fear. How does the image function as a document, as fiction, trophy, counterattack? How close is manipulation to prediction? Is the weather still real?
