The project is an attempt to apply the agents mentioned in research paper on strategies in arts to create new attentional forms. A previous work, Tomorrow in a Glass, is selected and reworked to include agents including concrete & defamiliarization, chance & indeterminacy and breaking the fourth wall.
The original version of the work is a live video system to generate random videos based on the weather forecast readings from a storm glass.
For the new version, 28 participants are invited to subscribe to receive updates about the project. The storm glass is placed in a new location suggested by one participant every day, the system generates a new video based on the reading on site, and the result is sent to all participants via email.
The materials generated from the readings is used to create a 4-part new work, each part is finished by the end of every week. The editing is done everyday, and progress is emailed to subscribers together with the forecast video.
