"Yu-Cheng Hsu. 2005. Tangible weather channel. In Proceedings of the 13th annual ACM international conference on Multimedia (MULTIMEDIA '05). ACM, New York, NY, USA, 1082-1083. DOI=10.1145/1101149.1101388 http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1101149.1101388" Tangible Weather Channel is an interactive sculptural apparatus that enables the participant to type in the remote location of a loved one and interprets its real-time weather information as a way of creating an emotional connection. Rather than employing traditional graphical representation, Tangible Weather Channel renders weather information into a multi-sensory experience by using natural elements such as water, air and sound. By materializing weather dynamics on intimate sites to mediate what occurs in another place, Tangible Weather Channel encourages the participant to establish links with his or her experiential memories of a specific place and to create a sense of closeness to a loved one via touch and contemplation. It investigates the experiential and performative aspects of information representation, and interrelationship among material, meaning, memory and perception. The system can be built upon to make more elaborate installations and this is the first iteration of a work which can be greatly expanded.
