Weather Report is a site-specific art installation that entices visitors to examine climate change at a human scale, both physically and metaphorically. Weather data are displayed using the balloons as physical pixels that can be touched, part of an effort to make objective, scientific data graspable by non-scientists. Visitors contrast these objective weather data with their own data - weather-related memories they enter at a kiosk to create a subjective weather record from the Twin Cities community.
