Solar-Sailer is a kinetic sculpture that induces an aesthetic experience of the nature we
live, represents data visualization of the natural environment in a new way. It detects weather condition data and transmits it continuously into a micro-controller of sculpture through a network. Weather data such as wind speed and temperature creates and controls wave movement of fabricated objects and it will spin at different speeds and light projected from below the rotating objects will create a shadow of different patterns. This Project will utilize digital media and technologies to heighten awareness of invisible weather patterns, creating connected experience between nature and viewer.
