A work in progress:
One year in temperature materialised in acrylic.

The height is the temperature values.
Each row is one week long, and with 52 rows, there's one year in temperature, in Helsinki, Finland.

The year covered is the one between may 2009 -> may 2010 . The winter was quite cold, to say the least.

This was just a test. Am hoping to do a bit of a skinned surface in the end, and use a more natural material, like wood.
... just need to get that coordinate points count down. Seems the CNC toolpath machinery doesn't like it too much.

Kind thanks goes to the Aalto Media Factory, which has had the kindness to provide funding for physical information design research.
