Unpredictable Atmosphere

To predict future climate models, research agencies collect essential weather data by measuring the vibration of water vapor particles. Weather tracking systems can detect the atmosphere within the 24 GHz frequency of the electromagnetic spectrum, but in recent years telecommunications companies have selected the same band for 5G use, obstructing the collection of atmospheric data. These open bands on the spectrum become spaces of political conflict, and the critical proximity between the two systems generates new forms of interference. This contested multidimensional space becomes a new ground for experimentation to be watched through the lens of computation.
