Combining programming, science, and art

Interactions can become beautiful pieces of art as is displayed by the Wind Map, a software on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Wind Map at the MoMA

The map is based on software that uses information from the National Digital Forecast. It then takes this information and transforms it into a visual masterpiece expressing wind patterns over the United States. Not only is this information beautiful, but it is also useful as it provides a simple visual aid to represent complex data.

Upon visiting the site of the Wind Map, take a chance to click on the actual map of the US to enlarge any segment. It’s very cool!
