015: Concept development iii

Weather forecast

– analogy for exceptions for the future

– storm glass is used as the device for forecasting the future: consumer product, ancient technique, doubts

A weather forecast system is built, using realtime information from a storm glass; where the result (the forecast) is presented in a series clips related to the forecast, run in random order for 1 minute.  The forecast becomes a short narrative video about tomorrow, and each forecast generates a different story.  

There is only Sunday (Gloomy Sunday)

The system forecasts weather of Sundays only, inspired by the song Gloomy Sunday, which is also known as the Hungarian Suicide Song.  It is a song composed by Hungarian pianist and composer Rezső Seress and published in 1933.  The original lyrics were titled Vége a világnak (The world is ending) and were about despair caused by war, ending in a quiet prayer about people’s sins.


The flow:

Projection video

  • Clip showing day of week
  • Get weather forecast info from storm glass (live feed)
