there is no shortage of ways to send and recieve information. If there's one development
that has had it's influence on our daily lives in the last decade it's the rise of digital
technology and this development continues.
The question is no longer what information can be made digital, but what do we make digital? And if that information exists in digital form, what is the best place to show it? Does the way in which digital information is presented make a difference in how it's percieved? Can the same information in a different place get a different meaning?
A weather radar is a digital representation of a physical objects. Something as intangible as clouds are measured and get a new shape in a digital world. By changing the place of a weatherradar from the screen to the ceiling it has the same orientation as the real clouds it represents. Under The Radar is a real time text based weather radar, where the reading direction is also the direction of the wind. Just like the real clouds you have to look up to see where the rain is, but now with a view of a hundred kilometers and without getting wet.
