Trance Of Wind
These mesmerizing, swirling patterns—reminiscent of those seen in Vincent Van Gogh’s The Starry Night—are visualizations of wind across several regions of Earth.
They come from a project called “earth” by Cameron Beccario, which depicts near-real-time global weather conditions processed by supercomputers and updated every three hours. The wind patterns above happened early last week and are created from U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data.
The top three gifs visualize wind conditions near the surface of the Earth. The bottom gif, with its brighter colors and more energetic wind movements, are visualizations of the jet stream about 6.5 miles above the planet’s surface.
Andres Amador is an artist who uses the beach as his canvas, racing against the tide to create these large scale temporary masterpieces using a rake or stick ..
Andres’ creations are simply stunning and knowing that these delicate creations are temporary somehow makes them even more beautiful.
