Taking Cory Arcangel's “Super Mario Clouds” as an aesthetic staring point, Andrew O'Malley adds weather controlled animation, a generative soundtrack, and audience interaction to create a unique audio-visual installation entitled, “Weather Channel.”

The density, speed, and direction of the clouds, along w/ the hue of the sky, are all controlled by local, real-time weather data; a generative soundtrack is created by assigning an audible sine wave to each cloud, its audio parameters (pitch, pan, etc.) controlled by the position of its cloud; and a rainbow slowly reveals itself after viewers are detected sitting on a bench by a hidden IR sensor.
