Weather has been nice by Andrea Wolf

Andrea Wolf fills the Skybridge Project Space with abstracted landscapes, locations, and memories.
Located in Skybridge Project Space
'Weather has been nice' is a series of generative videos in which vintage found postcards are slowly broken down into their basic elements. A pixel sorting algorithm manipulates the postcards, lunging them into movement, and generating a dynamic glitch that slowly decomposes into the dominant colors. The custom-made application triggers a transformation, creating a system where the elements are continuously regenerating and composing new images. For this installation, ten sound artists and musicians have created soundscapes using recordings of the messages written in the postcards. The decomposing images and text highlight the links between landscape, identity, and memory. Over time, descriptions tend to replace experiences, and memory and perception transform landscapes into stories.
