I've seen objects created using weather data before, but the Measuring Cup might just be the most long-term, comprehensive visualization yet. Spanning from 1859 to 2009, it shows just how humans have impacted the world over time.

Created by Mitchell Whitelaw, the Measuring Cup used Sydney Meteorological data in particular to create its shape. As Whitelaw sees it, "there’s a moment of haptic tension there, between ergonomic (human centred) pleasure and the evidence of how our human-centredness is playing out for the planet as a whole."
