LO-04-Sound Art

The Weather Thingy is a custom built device that translates weather information into sound. I think this is a very crucial piece to have in this time and age to remind us of the importance of the climate. I think it is very innovative how they turned the climate into sound. While we can feel the climate through all of our senses, I feel that the auditory senses feel the least; therefore, it is important to give the auditory senses. There are also amplifier adjustments that allow the user to adjust how calm or violent it perceives the climate. I feel that the system randomizes how they perceive sounds and offset certain qualities and turn them into sounds. By rescripting nature, the artists have the ability to convey how they perceive nature and share it with others.
