Point Cloud, imagining daily interaction with weather

Liz Danzico

Point Cloud suggests we take another look at weather, the "intangible context within which we build our lives and our cities, but it is also the physical element against which we create protective shelter." As meteorological advances have http://www.npr.org/blogs/krulwich/2011/06/20/130325730/how-high-is-the-sky, and our understanding of data science http://www.nytimes.com/2012/, weather continues to surprise us.

    Not completely certain what it's communicating either. In part, I find that the most fascinating aspect -- that we typically represent weather in hand-drawn puffy clouds or clean bolts of lightening, but that actual weather data represents it in a much more obtuse and complex way. A perfect metaphor.

      Yeah. It's really nicely done. I'd love to be able to sit there and watch it and interact with it.

    Seconding Casey's comment, the moment between that macro/micro level view of this is amazing.

  • Casey Caplowe

    Super beautiful. I did not expect that to be a physical/mechanical visualization at first. It's really amazing to look at, though i don't totally understand what its communicating.

    This is phenomenal, wagering to form the formless.
