cotton banners, light sensitive pigments

Two banners of thin cotton fabric are painted with light sensitive pigments to create a weather chart of Europe displaying sunny weather. During the three days of the festival the weather chart will appear and disappear as a function of the amount of ultraviolet light it receives, depending on the daytime, weather conditions, and the duration of exposure to the sun. While one can see a white banner on which a weather chart starts to appear once exposed to daylight, the light sensitive ink alludes to the palpably unknown.
