Strange Weather

Strange Weather is a long-term project that is currently recruiting users interested in making sense of life. It consists of two components: Firstly, a database that accumulates personal indicators entered by its users (eg. index of well-being, body temperature, alcohol consumption) along with external indicators harvested from the internet (eg. weather in various cities, stock trading indexes, political approval rates, river heights). Secondly, a number of visualisation tools that enable users to mine this collaborative data warehouse, revealing patterns and underlying relationships in the seemingly obscure and unrelated data.Strange Weather is a visible manifestation of the desire to make understandable, that which normally falls outside of the scale of our comprehension. Our attempts to understand the world and ourselves seem to be both admirable and absurd. Colliding the personal with the global, Strange Weather is a diagnostic tool that both elucidates and confounds.
