The weather greatly influences the impression a day leaves on us. We remember if it was sunny on a wedding or if the sky was covered with clouds and parents will never forget the weather on their child's birthday.
»Wetterwerk« (»weather works«) tries to catch this atmosphere and capture it into images. Once per second, the originally developed, solar-powered weather station is recording the properties of the current weather and sends them to a computer terminal, which generates a live image from the input.
Every image consists of 86.400 lines ordered line by line and column by column. Each line corresponds to one second, all the lines together represent one whole day. The meteorological data directly influences the position, length and other properties of the lines, so that the course of the weather during a day can be tracked. The resulting image as a whole then mirrors the atmosphere of the particular day.
