2016 saw the highest number of potential tornadoes since the beginning of weather recordkeeping in Germany. Likewise, there is a deluge of weather tropes on the internet, on television, and on the news: shit storms, data floods, refugee waves. Language, metaphors, and images are instruments of control. They are used to dispel—and to produce­—fear. How does the image function as a document, as fiction, trophy, counterattack? How close is manipulation to prediction? Is the weather still real?
