Hosted by Maren Loveland

In this episode, we turn our attention to the larger-than-life cloud creations of Tomás Saraceno, an artist who creates cities in the clouds and flyable cloud sculptures as a way of imagining more peaceful, ecological futures. We also hear from the media philosopher John Durham Peters, whose book The Marvelous Clouds revolutionizes the way we think about humans, nature, and art. Finally, we learn from a cloud scientist, Andrea Salazar, about the importance of cloud feedback systems on a warming planet.
