This image of the clouds is compared to the one taken by a satellite, and the two images (clouds from both sides) represent the two ways of knowing: a scientific narrative, and a human experience narrative. This exploration of perspectives is motivated by an interest in how we create ideologies and is based on the practice of collecting ‘ground truth’ and comparing data gathered at a distance to what is there in reality.
*Bring your bike to the workshop!*
**Anyone anywhere can participate in the project so spread the word: just take a picture of the sky at 11:59 wherever you are, and upload it at nephologies.com/PictureSky**
