Blikur is a series of four objects made out of materials that change in dialogue to different atmospheric conditions, revealing patterns of the weather with movement rather than numbers. The objects are sensors measuring atmospheric pressure, temperature, humidity levels and wind direction. 

Our atmosphere is this invisible network of signals. Our television produces images out of thin air and radios produce sounds by catching radio waves with it’s antenna. It’s all invisible intangible information that any minute could get lost and with our daily lives becoming ever more digitalised, we increasingly put our faith in it. Simultaneously we forget our ability to connect to the physical one, to read into natural patterns of our immediate surroundings and to put fragments of information into a context.

Weather is forecasted by observation of micromanaged sensors, measuring quantified variables of earths atmosphere. Interactions of these variables, how they change over time and the patterns they follow are the basis for determining the weather of tomorrow. With Blikur the numbers and the graphs have been removed, encouraging the viewer to look a little closer, find patterns in it’s surroundings and reestablish the connection to nature again.
