Weather Box is a hand-cranked music box, housed in scavenged cardboard and accompanied by 12 punch card "scores" derived from actual weather data. Bouchard obtained hourly reports from the National Climatic DataCenter then graphed changes in temperature, wind and precipitation onto a timeline, which became the foundation for each punch card score. Each score represents one month of weather observations as recorded by NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, at the Belvedere Castle weather station in Central Park, NYC.
