.inf is an abstract and constantly changing visualization of data, taken in real-time from current weather situations on earth.
Incoming data like humidity, temperature, atmospheric pressure, wind speed, wind direction and cloudiness at a special location causes changes of the position, speed, lighting and coloring of two million virtual points, floating inside a three dimensional space.
Atmospheric noise is used for the sound synthesis and switches randomly between different places and their existing weather situation.
This causes unpredictable images and sounds. Every frame of the resulting image and the representation of the sound is unique and not reproducible.
High differences in values, by switching randomly between different locations can trigger interrupting events, phases and flickering effects in the image and sound.
