‘The Weather Yesterday’ takes our obsession with progress ad absurdum by changing our focus from forecast to the past. The installation is enabled through a post-live link to the weather forecast displaying the weather at any point in time exactly as it was, yesterday. ‘The Weather Yesterday’ replicates familiar pop culture iconography to display weather information that typically addresses the future. Yet this sign is a reflection of the past and holds information that is intrinsically meaningless.
‘The Weather Yesterday’ was first presented in Hoxton square in London and has since then been shown in different locations around the world.
