1 Colour, light, shape, sound and texture are often combined to interpret or create atmospheres. Claude Monet and JMW Turner made work in response to specific atmospheric conditions. Mark Rothko created abstract paintings with a defined atmosphere or mood. Brian Eno has created atmospheric soundscapes for art installation works. Dancer & choreographer Merce Cunningham collaborated with mixed-media artist Daniel Arsham who created dramatically lit, atmospheric, sculptural stage sets. Research appropriate sources & create your own work in response to ATMOSPHERES. 3- Atmospheres 14

2 Joseph Turner, “Rain Wind Speed” Claude Monet and JMW Turner made work in response to specific atmospheric conditions.

3 3- Atmospheres 14 Joseph Turner, “ Hannibal and his Army Crossing the Alps ” For Turner, the figure of Hannibal – here leading his armies to attack Italy – had powerful associations with Napoleon. These connections had been explicitly drawn in an official portrait of Napoleon about to lead his own armies across the St Bernard Pass. Snow Storm, however, does not celebrate the power of the individual, but expresses man’s vulnerability in the face of nature’s overwhelming force. Hannibal himself is not pictured, and attention is focused upon victims of the conflict, the struggling soldiers. Claude Monet and JMW Turner made work in response to specific atmospheric conditions.

18 Can you please tell us more about Snarkitecture? Where did the idea originally come from? Snarkitecture came out of an experience I had when I was working on a project in a public space in Los Angeles. Much of my work up to that point had often manipulated architecture, making it melt and ripple and drip and fold, but it was always in a scenario where I didn’t have to meet building code. For this project, I engaged my friend Alex Mustonen – he was studying architecture at Cooper Union when I was at the art school – to help me both retain the intention of the work and also make it feasible in relation to building codes and permanence. Following that there seemed to be a lot of opportunities in this grey area that functioned somewhere between artistic practice and more rigid architectural practice, so we formed Snarkitecture in The name comes from a Lewis Carroll poem called ‘The Hunting of the Snark’, in which a group of misfits are on an ocean searching for a beast called the Snark. They don’t know what the beast looks like or where it is, they’re just searching for a kind of a formless entity. We felt that Snarkitecture is sort of doing the same thing. - See more at: Erosion and entropy seem to be central themes in a lot of your work? So much of my work has always been about the manipulation and reformulation of architecture. I never traced this back to the experience of this storm until a few years ago, when it came up in an interview. But I certainly think I was always interested in architecture and how it might be made to do things that it wasn’t supposed to do. I always felt that architecture is meant to and often does have this very solid quality. It creates spaces that we inhabit for safety and comfort, and my work was always about disrupting that – but doing so in a very subtle way, which creates a distinctly uncanny quality. No matter how warped the objects of Daniel Arsham’s work may appear, there is always a sense that behind the ostensible obsession with disorder is a curious fascination with the possibilities of the environment around us. Through his own practice and with the architectural collaboration Snarkitecture, he explores and negotiates the relationship between nature and the built environment, and in his most recent exhibitions – ‘STORM’ at Galerie Perrotin in Paris and ‘Reach Ruin’ at the Fabric Workshop & Museum Philadelphia – Arsham revisits the memories of a hurricane that ravaged his childhood home 20 years ago.
