Weather Beacon, an art piece presently sitting in the middle of New York City's World Financial Center Plaza, takes in weather-related radio broadcasts and turns them into a visual spectacle that looks something like this:

I think this is "summer breeze," but I'm not entirely sure.

Anyway, the lights and moving gears (video here) are all influenced by weather reports, somehow, and artist Erik Guzman says the sculpture takes this information and visually displays it for passers-by.

Breezes, winds, rains—it's all in there, represented by all manner of flashes and grinding gears. See it for yourself, as Weather Beacon will be in NYC until the end of the year. [Erik Guzman via Gothamist via Neatorama]
