About

"The flashing weather beacon on a Toronto building is the structurally fixed point in this precise composition of illuminated surfaces and positive/negative imagery. Noting the 'intuitive process' of the film's first half–which was shot on Super 8 and edited in-camera–McLaren analyses and ritualizes the visual information through a video playback that echoes and doubles the original, improvised 'score.' Tightly framed with a menacing soundtrack, WEATHER BUILDING generates a claustrophobia and paranoia that loosely suggest the violence and boredum of punk." –Ian Birnie, The Art of Gallery of Ontario
