Janine Randerson

Janine Randerson is a New Zealand-based artist and writer. A thread in Janine’s moving image research concerns technological mediation in ecological systems. She has collaborated with urban meteorologists, satellite meteorologists and citizen activists in recent works including ‘Interceptor’ (2018) that examines water quality through citizen science interventions and the ‘Albedo of Clouds’ (2013/2018) exhibited last year at the Hermitage, St Petersburg. Janine has exhibited internationally in Australia, Germany, UK, Netherlands, Scandinavia, South America, Thailand and China. She has collaborated with scientists from NIWA (National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research) in New Zealand, BoM (Bureau of Meteorology) in Melbourne and she was an invited artist-in-residence with environmental research scientists at NERI in Denmark. She was a founding board member of ADA (Aotearoa Digital art network) and is a contributor and peer reviewer for Leonardo journal.


Her recent book “Weather as Media: Towards a Meteorological Art” (MIT Press, 2018) examines artworks that offer possible engagement with our future weathers, while finding openings for immediate action in the present. She is currently the PhD programme co-leader in the School of Art and Design at AUT University.
