Weather Guitar, 2006, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, 2013
Weather guitar is a robotic guitar player that responds to variations in weather conditions. The focus of this project is an attempt to draw parallels between the scientific inquiry of measuring and quantifying the natural elements, and the romantic notion of the weather acting as a source of artistic inspiration.
During the realisation of this project great care has been taken to make the system as flexible, modular and open as possible, allowing for the project to be modified for each context it is shown in. There is an emphasis on keeping the level of programming and electronics to a minimum allowing the viewer to clearly witness the influence of the weather on the guitar player.
