The winter of 2013-14 will be remembered by the worst storms to affect Britain since records began; homes damaged, lives lost and continual electrical black-outs leaving many without access to essential services. As images of flooded villages and submerged cars spilled across news networks around the globe, the British Government’s emergency response committee COBRA convened in Whitehall. Over the next three months COBRA would meet over thirty times, chaired by a number of different politicians. During this same period COBRA RES invited a selection of artists, filmmakers and writers to respond to the ‘emergency event’ or the existence of the COBRA committee itself. This publication and DVD, bring together those film and text based responses.
