This week’s FEEDBACK FRIDAY was with weaver and climate activist Tali Weinberg. Tali is an artist who utilizes weaving, sculpture, thread drawing, and works on paper to visualize climate data.
Tali presented her recent work responding to intertwined climate and health crises and talked about grief, water, oil, place, and weaving as text.

ABOUT TALI: Tali Weinberg draws on a history of weaving as a subversive language for women and marginalized groups to create a feminist, material archive in response to worsening climate crisis. Her works merge practices of record keeping with practices of grieving and merge expressions of scientific research with expressions of lived experience. Through sculpture, drawing, and textiles using natural dyes, she traces relationships between climate change, water, extractive industries, illness, and displacement.
