Description

We inhabit the floor of an ocean of air, but we hardly think about the changes that occur within this medium day to day. This installation is a three-dimensional manifestation of the changes that occur in the atmosphere. The proposal is a map of barometric pressure and accumulated precipitation, visualized through a grid of paint dipped plastic panels.

Each panel represents the maximum barometric pressure of the week. A higher barometric pressure is embodied by a longer plastic panel as if the pressure of the air is elongating the plastic. A lower barometric pressure is embodied by a shorter plastic panel which creates voids within the installation intended to be occupied. Each panel is dipped in paint to the level of precipitation for the week.

The installation will visualize the connection between barometric pressure and precipitation as well as highlight annual trends. The observer can occupy and experience the subtle changes in the ocean of air.
