Wind

What data did you collect?

We collected wind patterns by attaching a Wii remote to the branches of a tree. It was a calm day so the data collected was long and slow.

How did you visualise the data in Processing?

The Wii gave use 5 pieces of data. Acceleration in X, Y and Z axis as well as pitch & roll. I plotted this data by creating 5 particles and making each one draw with different colours.

How did you turn these visualisations into a poster?

I took the basic lines generated and then worked on making the whole piece a composition. I made the lines draw vertically and chose a colour scheme with greens and blues to give a calm, natural feeling to match the data.
