lovelyweather.com is an interactive audiovisual installation, or a work originally designed for viewing on the internet. This work is part of a series called LovelyWeather, which uses a database of field recordings and digital photographs taken on a nature walk in the Ellwood Mesa, CA area, in order to form a virtual audio-visual space that is navigable by computer mouse.

Correspondingly, lovelyweather.com draws inspiration from the field of soundscape composition (particularly the Presque Rien series by Luc Ferrari), interactive computer works (riverIsland by digital poet John Cayley), and theoretical works on the continuum of representational and abstract art, including Wassily Kandinsky’s Concerning the Spiritual in Art.

lovelyweather.com is partially funded by the UCSB Interdisciplinary Humanities Center.
