Weather Almanac is an instrument that captures real-time and historical meteorological activity, and transports it into the domestic sphere. Inspired by the ways in which the external forces find their way into Schloss Hollenegg’s interiors – from the gentle rattle of a light wind, to the deafening sound of a summer storm – the piece aims to not only relay quantitative data, but to also display qualitative experiences of movement, colour and sound.

The electro-mechanical dot display is controlled by a custom software connected to the weather data of Graz-Thalerhof airport. The wind and rain data is used as an input to change the composition of the display: when there is almost no wind outside, the coloured pixel of the panel move slowly and subtly; with strong wind, a wave of flipping dots rattle like the windows of the castle; when it rains, the sound
is deafening. Instead of investing efforts in regulating our interior climate, we should reconnect to the elements and embrace with reverence the beauty of what can not be controlled.
