The Cloud Machine – A Personalized Weather Modification Prototype

While airship construction is not generally within the purview of media artists, a recent project by Karolina Sobecka makes a compelling case for floating personalized weather modification devices up towards the stratosphere. The Cloud Machine is a composite weather balloon and rudimentary cloud seeding apparatus that can create small clouds and make subtle alterations to […]

James Leng – Point Cloud

‘Point Cloud’ – Arduino structure by James Leng breathes weather data

Created by James Leng, Point Cloud is an attempt to re-imagine our daily interaction with weather data. Even with the modern scientific and technological developments related to weather and when we can deploy sophisticated monitoring devices to document and observe weather, our analysis and understanding of meteorology is still largely approximate. Weather continues to surprise us and […]

Tele-Present Water [MaxMSP, Arduino]

Created by David Bowen, Tele-Present Water installation draws information from the intensity and movement of the water in a remote location. Wave data is collected in real-time from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) data buoy station 46075 Shumagin Islands Alaska. The wave intensity and frequency is scaled and transferred to the mechanical grid structure resulting […]

Floating Forecaster [MaxMSP, iPhone]

Floating Forecaster is a project by Richard Harvey which includes a physical display that reinterprets information via hovering patterns and flowing movements. The installation also allows users to create patterns and sequences using either an iPhone app interface (c74) or a custom made MaxMSP sequencing program. In the earlier examples, project started as a way to visualise weather, […]
