D'istral - Live Weather Data Paintings

D'istral is short for Digital Mistral.  This is a personal project combining my generative Houdini paint system - Stroke-it - and realtime weather data supplied by openweathermap.org.  The system acquires up-to-date weather information from any of 200,000 cities, including time of day, temperature, cloud cover, precipitation and wind speed, and then uses these values to create a unique abstract interpretation of the local weather.  I've also started printing some of my favorite D'istral paintings and working on an interactive app.
