SP Weather Reports are collated portfolios published annually in 2008-2013 by the artist-collaborative SP Weather Station. Each year, twelve artists (or artist groups), one per month, were invited to ‘report’ on the weather data taken by the SPWS rooftop station, installed on the roof of Flux Factory in Long Island City. This open-ended assignment was interpreted strictly or loosely; artists created prints, booklets, drawings, audio files, photos and video.

Below are images of the open portfolios and lists of participants. For details on each report see: 2008 Portfolio, 2009 Portfolio, 2010 Portfolio, 2011 Portfolio, 2012 Portfolio, and 2013 Portfolio. For more information and availability please email spweatherstation (at) gmail (dot) com, or purchase through the SP Weather Station shop.

SPWS reports portfolios have been placed in many public and private collections. At least one portfolio of the six is in the following institutional collections: The Center for Book Arts; Denison University, Library, Artist Book Collection; Duke University; Massachusetts College of Art, Godine Library, Artist Book Collection; Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Nevada Museum of Art Center for Art + Environment Archives Collections; Otis College of Art & Design; Pratt Institute Library; University of Utah Fine Arts Library; University of California, Berkeley, Environmental Design Library, Special Collections; Virginia Commonwealth University Library.
