troika: the weather yesterday

london studio troika pays homage to britain’s obsession with meteorological conditions with ‘the weather yesterday’, changing the focus from ‘forecast’ to ‘the past’.

through a post-live link, the five-meter tall installation displays the weather and temperature at any point of time exactly as it was the previous day, addressing the fixation with communication technology, along with forecasting and the potential for sunshine which is a predominant topic of discussion in british culture. situated within london’s hoxton square until september 9th, 2012, the paradoxical object applies LEDs and custom electronics to ‘emphasize the transition from the virtual to the physical while addressing the urgency by which we are generating endless streams of information not linked to any real life experiences.’

‘the weather yesterday’ has been commissioned by RIBA for the london festival of architecture and funded by GLA.
