White during the day, E-Motion looks dramatically different at night when it becomes a weather beacon delivering the next day's forecast. Red lights indicate warmer weather, blue forecasts cooler weather, and green stands for no change. Yellow lights warn of severe weather, and you can expect rain when it flashes different colors. 

Shashi Caan is the founder of the Shashi Caan Collective, an architecture group out of New York City and London. She has a BFA in Environmental Design from Edinburgh College, and a Masters degree from Pratt Institute in Architecture and Industrial Design.
