Draw weather-driven

Experimental drawing tool influenced and shaped by real-time weather data.

'Draw weather-driven' is an experimental drawing tool influenced and shaped by real-time weather data. The web application consists of a generative paintbrush, that has attributes like color, opacity, texture and line width based on the weather conditions of a selected location.

These attributes can easily be changed by searching for another location with different weather conditions, what makes it possible to create a variety of drawings. The self-initiated project experiments with real-time data and its influence on a creative process like drawing. It could be used in education to learn about geography and data as well as foster creativity and artistic expression.
