Huarere Weather Eye Weather Ear Screening Programme is a new exhibition presented by Te Tuhi as part of the World Weather Network. Curated by Janine Renderson, the exhibition features the three most recent works part of the project:

Ka Tangi te Kārearea a te Rangi Uaheke, by Riki Pirihi (video, 5 min 23 sec).
Ka Tangi te Kārearea a te Rangi Uaheke is a solo percussion performance by multi-instrumentalist, producer, composer, and sound artist Riki Pirihi (Ngāti Wai, Ngāti Māhanga Hourua) recorded at the summit of Moe-i-te-rā (Brooklyn Hill) in Te Whanganui a-Tara Wellington.

Ocean Rain, by Jae Hoon Lee (video, part I 10 min 45 sec).
Jae Hoon Lee creates two new films exploring live weathers and simulated weathers and the layered dichotomy between two; the real and imaginative, a physical location on the coast of Taiwan (one ancestral homeland of Moana peoples), and a virtual space, the human and non-human, the natural and artificial.

Tūhononga (Cluster and Connection), by Tia Barrett (video, phase I 4min 15 sec - phase II 5 min 01 sec).
Through walks, videos, and community dialogues, Barrett explores the question: "what pūrākau (stories) from our past can we draw upon to benefit the future of our whenua (land)? And how can toi Māori (Māori arts) serve as a means to translate this message into action?".
