Higher ED (Ecology + Dance) researched the effects of the urban heat island through weather observation, movement scores, and DIY aerial mapping strategies with kites and weather balloons developed by Public Laboratory for Open Technology and Science (PLOTS). The collaborators utilized these tools to better understand and articulate the physical interrelatedness of climate, weather, built environment, and the body. They developed a wind-determined performance practice that grew throughout the following year.
