Weather Girl’s forecast for Monday May 21st. Throw Caution to the Wind, on Centre Island near the beach.

Under the Weather:
Over the course of a week—Sunday May 20th to Sunday May 27th—Weather Girl (artist Tara Cooper’s alter ego) will be forecasting the weather on Toronto Island. Most of Bell Canada’s booths on the island are designed to shelter the phones; they leave callers exposed. Mirroring a desert island mentality, their structures’ imply communication needed for emergencies. Reflecting a similar need for lifelines, Under the Weather offers daily meteorological advice via seven different phone booths. Drawn in chalk the advice is impermanent; it is susceptible to inclement weather. Although it still costs money to make a call, Weather Girl’s advice is free. 

This is a part of the Tel Talk project; here is a link to the blog:
