Weather Beacon is an oracle for the digital age. Merging wireless connectivity, industrial engineering, movement and light, this kinetic sculpture invites the public to connect to both the physical and invisible surroundings. Weather Beacon receives information from the Internet and emits a code of flashing lights, forecasting the weather for a curious public.
Weather Beacon Transformed into Light Organ
For a special one night event, viewers could plug audio input from their smart devices into the Weather Beacon. Tremble, bass, tempo and other musical data were translated into a stunning organ of colored lights illuminating the Lower Manhattan waterfront.
