Weather Particles

Particle based projecting installation reacting to real time weather data


The prototype gets weather data from the Yahoo Weather API and uses this information to effect the parameters that control the particle system. Wind controls the constant forces within the system, temperature controls particle sizes and special weather modes (storm, rain etc) can trig specific particle behaviour. The prototype also has a music reactive mode as well as some suggestions for alternative graphical modes.

Made as a research project for Circus Family.

My role

My role in this project involved ideation, researching weather input types and API’s, all coding and visual design.
