TRT 33min, 2009
price upon request

Twelve O’Clock in London: time of world unity.
A system can appear to have effective free will in the sense that
no one, especially not the system itself, can decide whether its
macroscopic behavior is completely determined, let alone fully
predict it. Observable, yet unpredictable. A forecast short-circuits
its cause. And still - Twelve O’Clock in London is the moment of
the balloons.  Weather balloon sondings are globally
synchronized under the umbrella of the United Nations
Specialized Agency ‘World Meteorological Organization’ daily at
UTC 00.00h and 12.00h.
Every 12 hours all world nations undergo a synchronized routine
in an unprecedented effort of global collaboration -- launching
balloons in search of ground truth to forecast the future.
