Environmental data expressed through the dynamics of fog and air

Fog so alters, captivates, and enchants environments that it is so much a phenomena of weather as it is the very definition of atmosphere - whether that be tranquil, dangerous, or foreboding. An assemblage of foggers, textiles, fans, and modulators, together with water reservoirs and electronic controllers to control airflow, were housed within a functional black box. The box was imagined to be like a piece of audio or photographic equipment, with openings and articulations only as needed to allow for air circulation and to provide a rotary knob for control of the fan. The control of electronics, modulators, and textiles working in tandem with the environmental conditions allowed for parameters to be set, on one hand, and for the fog to then transgress and jump out of control, on the other, as an emergent and unfolding phenomenon.
