In Weather Gauge, numerical weather data from over 100 countries is simultaneously represented on-screen or in a gallery, forming an array of hypnotic animated data referencing a huge global spread of live information.
Each piece of weather data rotates between centigrade, Fahrenheit, local-time and city of origin, so when presented in a large array, the whole field of information rhythmically evolves, offering viewers an unusual extended sense of context beyond the physical iteration of the work.
