Rafaël Rozendaal hasn’t updated his portfolio of interactive web artworks for a while now, presumably because he’s been too busy coding, creating, opining at conferences and generally shaping the future of the internet. No big deal. But true to form he’s recently returned with a new site that allows you to play God with the weather. Lookingatsomething.com lets you adjust the power of rain, the chatter of birdsong and the clapping of thunder with the simplest of flicks of your cursor, transforming a perfectly pleasant day into a torrential downpour in the blink of an eye. Once again Rafaël provokes us to question our relationship with the web and, as ever, we can have terrific fun as we do it. We’re thrilled to have Rafaël talking about his work at Here 2013, our creative symposium.
