Weathergauge

 

2005, Web site which gathers data from elsewhere on the internet

All over the world, strangers talk only about the weather.  You can be in the middle of nowhere, but be online. Chatting on Skype with relatives in Australia, we compare the sunshine or rain at that very moment.

In Weather Gauge, numerical weather data from dozens of places simultaneously forms an array of animated data which is strangely evocative. Jon Thomson and Alison Craighead make art using any technology necessary, from Google teatowels to connected pianos.
