The Other Forecast was a project by artists John O’Shea (Manchester) and Ellie Harrison (Glasgow), made in response to the MediaCityUK site at Salford Quays – home to the new BBC and ITV studios. With Richard DeDomenici, Ellie Harrison, Shona Macnaughton, Kim Noble, John O’Shea and Yuri Pattison.
“On Friday 25 October, six artists were invited to MediaCityUK to create their own take on the familiar ‘weather forecast’. Recorded LIVE in front of a greenscreen in one single take, they each explain to camera the interconnectedness of a variety of local and global systems – not just meteorological, but social, political or financial – presenting a different ‘worldview’ from their own personal perspective.”
The videos were also screened on the Big Screen at MediaCityUK.
