Weather patterns

Search the web for examples of the cloud pattern called Mega Mendung from the Indonesian region of Cirebon.
Develop your own pattern from the clouds or other weather conditions where you are by drawing or using a camera to get close to capture the image.
Change the angle of your viewpoint. Take it from above, behind or the side. Explore using filters or adjustments such as in hue and saturation to change the image. Once you have gathered and developed your ideas, use them as stimuli for composing dance, making drama, organising sound in music and/or artmaking in Visual Arts.
