Open-weather is a collaborative design and research project with geographer Sasha Engelmann probing the noisy relationships between bodies, atmospheres, and weather systems through experiments in amateur radio, open data and feminist tactics of sensing and séance.

Open-weather encompasses a series of how-to guides and critical frameworks, artworks and workshops on the reception of satellite images using free or inexpensive amateur radio technology. When possible, we work with open-source software and hardware.
