Hi there,
  I would like to contribute, yet I cant find where and the description
"how to..." just says, please contribute ... (doh)

The login doesnt help , its way down the layout anyways, so apart from
writing a comment on an existing breath I have no breath looing for how to
describe the latter,  shame......


> Dear Netbehaviourists and fellow breathers,
> We'd like to invite you to contribute to our breath collection at
> 'Talking About the Weather' Blog.
> Is is very easy, just describe your breath in one word or many...
> More info about the project is below. Or you could visit the Blog and
> see for yourself.
> http://www.scanz.net.nz/weathertalk/
> If you'd like to contribute to our breath collection email us (hit
> reply) for the login details.
> Thanx

> About the Project:
> "The air you just exhaled has already spread far and wide. The CO2
> from a breath last week may now be feeding a plant on a distant
> continent, or plankton in a frozen sea. In a matter of months all of
> the CO2 you just exhaled will have dispersed around the planet."
> Tim Flannery, The Weather Makers
> Talking About the Weather is an ongoing cross media project exploring
> our own response to the terrifying spectre of global climate change.
> Sheer terror at the possibilities that are being talked about led us
> to 'talking about the weather'. The weather, once a safe way for
> strangers to connect, is now fraught with an edge of danger as
> ominous signs of global warming multiply. In this project weathertalk
> is no longer a banal exchange of local weather forecasts, but instead
> we ask people to donate their breath - the breath which they would
> normally use to talk about the weather and the same breath that is
> spread far and wide as described by Tim Flannery.
> Working with breath emphasises the dynamic nature of the atmosphere
> and our part in its creation and destruction. As Tim Flannery says,
> every breath you take makes you part of a dynamic system called the
> atmosphere, or the aerial ocean.
> Talking about the Weather involves performative encounters, where we
> perform two Australian visitors to a foreign place asking for
> donations to our breath collection (to be the largest in the world)
> with which we will blow back global warming. These performative
> encounters continue our work with the �pataphysical mode of an
> imaginary solution for an actual problem� in this case �
global warming.
> We have been �documenting� the encounters on video and
there is a
> link to excerpts on the blog.
> During our (July 3-17) new media residency in New Zealand (SCANZ-
> http://www.scanz.net.nz/weathertalk/), we will be collecting more
> breath on the streets of New Plymouth. We will be exhibiting the
> breath collections, including your contributions, at Govett-Brewster
> Gallery in New Zealand in mid July, so please contribute soon.
> Who we are:Out-of-Sync is a collaboration between Australian media
> artists Maria Miranda and Norie Neumark . For more info see our
> website:
