Klimakonverter is an on-site and online installation that brings both objective data about the weather as well as the subjective data that results after processing by and presentation in the mass media into a sensory experiential context. The objective data and sonagrams of the moderation of worldwide TV weather shows are visualized and translated into an artificial climate; “talking about the weather” is initiated as a way of playing with the installation. The visualization of the converted climate generates a world climate map set up especially for this purpose on the WWW, whereby particular attention is paid to countries in which the climate is a political factor of considerable importance.
