Project Statement

by J.Drucker

The overall project of subjective meteorology has a long history, going back to event drawings and writings in the 1970s. This book is the presentation of research done at UC Santa Barbara in the spring of 2004 when Drucker was the Digital Humanities Fellow and worked on the diagrammatic representation of subjective experience. This project in turn extended some of the ideas in the Temporal Modeling project done at University of Virginia in 2000-02 as a visualization space. Subjective Meteorology takes the terminology and templates of traditional meteorology and uses them as a way to describe subjective experience through a subsitution of vocabulary.
