Lighthouse's Monthly Talks happen on the first Thursday of each month, and feature some of the most exciting and influential names in digital art and moving image. Following the inaugural Monthly Talk by semiconductor in July, we will be welcoming American artist Andrea Polli to Lighthouse in August. She will present her inspirational meteorological artwork.

Andrea Polli is a digital media artist living in New Mexico. In her work, global weather and air pollution data are transformed into mesmerising video and sound installations. Many of Polli's works rely on a process called sonification", which translates data into sound. Her work has been exhibited extensively around the world, including at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Art Center Nabi in Korea, Centre pour l'image Contemporaine in Geneva, Site Gallery in Sheffield, the Center for Contemporary Art in Santa Fe, Eyebeam in New York NY, and the ICA in London, as well as at festivals such as transmediale and SIGGRAPH.
