Anna Madeleine Raupach is a multidisciplinary artist based on Ngunnawal and Ngambri Country Canberra, Australia. Her practice spans physical and digital forms to explore how human and machine expression recursively evolves, and to examine how technology shapes our interpretation of the natural world. Using expanded drawing methods, experimental moving image, and mixed reality, her work re-interprets diagrammatic systems and aesthetics to inform an artistic inquiry that draws on scientific methodologies.

Through virtual Reality (VR), print and animation, The Forecast Factory generates dynamic visual compositions in response to real-time weather data.

The exhibition is based on experimental physicist Lewis Fry Richardson’s 19th century proposal for a factory in which human computers forecast the weather. More than 100 years later, this creative reinvention of the Forecast Factory returns hand-made and analogue aesthetics to Richardson’s theory of mathematical weather prediction that is still used in meteorology today.

By changing form according to environmental conditions, Raupach's series of new works redistribute human agency in the visualisation of natural systems to explore how climate change calls for new ways to interpret the weather.
