Summary  "Duxbury was invited to participate in the two-person exhibition, Internalised Space as part of 2007 Christchurch International Arts Festival to, ""consider aspects of internal and external phenomena and space"", (Press Release) through printmedia works. 'Tomorrow' builds on the history of predicting and recording the weather, initially through diaries and journals (before weather forecasting) and later through weather bulletins and reports. In this work Duxbury recontextualises these as a kind of poetry and adds to her oeuvre that references the annotations of the 19th century English artist John Constable.
Terms that relate to the weather share commonalities with expressions of mood and subjective feelings and Duxbury utilises these in this work, 'Through a combination of construction and poetry [that] invokes the rational side of the mind to let go' (Ric Spencer, The West Review, 08/04/06). Through a sequence of eight panels - relief and silkscreen prints - that allude to the passing of time and the changing of weather conditions from fair to foul, Duxbury 'uses well this nexus point of focussed light studies and casual notes on the weather to give the viewer's mind enough room never quite to solidify the sublime'. In this work Duxbury extends her research into the sky and its atmosphere as both internal and external forces in the way of artists such as the Australian Howard Taylor, as well as Roni Horn and Hamish Fulton."
