Weather Patterns

Weather patterns is an in-progress interface to my thesis blog that responds not only to the weather outside, but to the rhythm of speaking and silence in my blog posting. The site makes small talk about the weather, accumulating a stack of visual representations of weather for every day that I am silent, and starting a new stack when I have something to say. What results is a landscape of piles that not only respond to the current weather — the piles shift and shudder depending on the current wind speed —but it also shows my thesis writing in the historical context of what the weather was like at the time that I wrote it.
