Listening for Bob
55”x55”x8”
Reed, wood, data, 2010

The longer I look at weather data, the more it feels like I am listening as opposed to seeing relationships between meteorological variables. Especially when looking at weather systems out in the open ocean, I rely both on buoys and on-shore weather stations to approximate for me what the conditions were like at sea. Imperfect as it is, it feels like I am listening to an old echo to try to imagine how a storm such as Bob moved through the Gulf of Maine and what it must have felt like on the open ocean.
