Starting in 2006, I began building low-tech data collecting devices that extract weather data from specific environments. Living on Cape Cod at the time, I went to Herring Cove Beach for 18 months on a daily basis, rain or shine, to observe and record the interaction between weather and environment. The data was then compared to historical and global trends in weather and finally translated into a series of sculptures.
