.inf is an abstract and constantly changing visualization of data, taken in real-time from current weather situations on earth and atmospheric noise.Incoming weather data like humidity, temperature, atmospheric pressure, wind speed, wind direction and cloudiness at a special location causes random changes of the position, speed, lighting and colouring of two million virtual points, floating inside a three dimensional space.
Atmospheric noise, which is taken through online radio transmission is used for the sound synthesis. This data, also switches randomly between different places and their existing weather situations on earth, which causes unpredictable images.
Every frame of the resulting image and representation of the sound is unique and not reproducible.
High differences in the values between different current weather situations can trigger interrupting events, phases and flickering effects in the image and sound.
The endless generative visual and sound patterns in which one can easily lose themself, leaves the viewers and listeners with a different perception of time and a third person view on the uncountable changes surrounding us.
We can’t expect anything to remain unchanged.Nothing is fixed.There are no certainties.
Good things don’t last forever;bad things don’t last forever.Everything has its season;everything has its time;and time continously moves forward.
We observe changes around us:The seasons; birth, life and death; changes in our bodies; in our society; in our family and friends; in our community; in plants and animals; the weather; the urban or rural landscape.
Change might be natural, or it might be dueto human activity.It might be slow and gradual;or sudden and without warning.
Our state of mind is also constantly changing. It can change like the weather.Other changes may be slow or even imperceptible. We don’t notice the grass growing or the glacier flowing or the climate changing.
Sometimes we are shocked when werealise things have changed and we didn’tnotice.
We need a wider perspective and alonger-term view to be able to see suchchanges.We may welcome the changes, or we mayfind them challenging.
Through the changes there is the continuityof our being.
By becoming aware of this we can feel atease and in harmony with nature and theuniverse.
We will need to be aware of and be able to adjust to change; to be adaptable and to be resilient; to be able to let go and keep moving through life.
