Photo: Matthew Stanton. Linda Tegg is the inaugural artist for the University of Melbourne School of Geography’s Artist in Residence program (AiRG). The residency invites artists to explore geographical ideas around contemporary social and environmental processes. Linda Tegg's project Sensing Climate, is investigating geographical ‘practices of looking’ at changing physical and social environments in situ: in the lab, in the field, in the archive, and in the office.
