The Perfect Dance
Reed, wood, data, 2010

Hypothetical models of extremes gain freakishness to them when they actually play themselves out in nature. In October 1991, an event meteorologists still refer to as “The Perfect Storm” entered the Gulf of Maine. A low-pressure system hovering over Nova Scotia, an energy system coming from the Great Lakes, and a dying Hurricane near Bermuda called Grace, formed together to create an enormous storm called the “Halloween Storm” that eventually developed into another Hurricane. Of particular interest to me are the unusual paths these storms took, before and after they joined energies.
