The “Windcuts” are experiments by Miska Knapek in turning sensor data into physical instantiations, via Processing and an NC Milling machine (a computer controlled drill, for the rest of us ). Wind movement measurement data (wind direction, velocity and temperature) was used to generate a 3d form, which was then cut out of wood.
The MDF cuts you see below represent five days of wind. The direction of the line is the wind’s direction. The width and speed of movement is the wind speed. And the height is the temperature.
