When it comes to the weather, it can be agreed upon as the one thing that everyone is obsessed with, but the weather reports never get it right all the time. Especially for people living in northwestern parts of Europe – a weather forecast of sunshine and warmth, becomes rain and wind the next day. UK-based studio Troika, is highlighting this factor even more with its playful, tongue-in-cheek installation. ‘The Weather Yesterday’ has been installed in London’s Hoxton Square. The public artwork ‘predicts’ the weather that happened yesterday with typical weather forecast symbols we see in the news.

Troika explains on its site that the interactive installation

celebrates the weather as a predominant topic of discussion in British culture while offering a spin on the urgency with which we are using our mobile devices, forecasting and interactive technology.
