Commissioned by Julius Baer, artist James Clar presented a brand new installation at the 2022 edition of Art Dubai which focuses on the concept of ‘cloud seeding’, a form of weather modification prevalent in Dubai and something that locals and residents can identify with. The concept looks at nature and natural phenomena expressed via technology.
Having lived in Dubai for over 7 years, James was inspired by the cloud seeding mechanism where nature is modified using technology. He developed a software which will immerse visitors in a large-scale real time simulation of raindrops and fog, using custom technology to create a slowly morphing visual system that reflects our control of the environment.
James Clar was the first visual artist to showcase an artwork at the Julius Baer Lounge.
