The ongoing work Tomorrow’s Weather is a series of large-scale sculptural light installations that also function as weather stations. Consisting of clusters of hanging atmospheric molecules made out of acrylic spheres that are lit up from within by DMX-controlled LEDs, the installation’s lighting and color change depending on tomorrow’s weather forecast.

The installations receive data from the local forecasting service and transform this input into a fluctuating lighting scenario that gives the viewer an intuitive image of what weather to expect in twenty-four hours. For example, if showers and thunder are approaching, the light in the spheres resembles a drizzling and dripping vertical movement, sometimes interrupted by bright flashes. If the sun will be shining in a clear blue sky, the installation takes on various shades of blue with dots of yellow illumination.
