You are the weather


“When people talk about weather, they are talking about themselves.”

I wanted to further explore this statement by filming and interviewing people. I asked all participants the same question “How are you? How’s the weather today?” across several days. I filmed their answers and expressions. People had various responses while they were experiencing the same weather. Talking about the weather is usually a starting point of a conversation, but it can also be a method to unpack one's emotions and thoughts.
