Shoemaker has handled 3” of rain quite well from the remnants of Hurricane Andrea so far. Our monitoring equipment is hard at work and we hope to release preliminary data soon!

Windswept by Charles Sowers
Art installation fixed outside a gallery’s wall, displaying natural flow and turbulence of the wind - via dezeen:
The installation, titled Windswept, consists of 612 rotating aluminium weather vanes mounted on an outside wall. As gusts of wind hit the wall, the aluminium blades spin not as one but independently, indicating the localised flow of the wind and the way it interacts with the building.
“Our ordinary experience of wind is as a solitary sample point of a very large invisible phenomenon,” said Sowers. “Windswept is a kind of large sensor array that samples the wind at its point of interaction with the Randall Museum building and reveals the complexity and structure of that interaction.”
