A Weather House for the Current Climate is an updated traditional German Weather house, where a man and woman exit a Doner Kebab Shop, dependant on weather conditions. This contemporary representation of German residential living; a multiple-storey post war modernist building above a Doner Kebab shop, replaces the chalet as a national symbol, questioning national German culture and intercultural exchange, through folk art means.

Reproducing The Current Climate are a limited edition of 10 hand made weather houses which echo the cheap mass manufactured aesthetic of traditional weather houses.

Documenting Climate Change records an intervention where I put up for sale these contemporary weather houses in a traditional German Christmas Market, selling the work back to the locals in a public context.
