VIRTUAL HOLE - WIND 1:1 (2011)

Custom-made hardware, custom-made software, wind.

The installation Virtual Hole - Wind 1:1 embodies the transition of the wind from the immediate surrounding into interior space.

Every time the wind blows against the walls of the building outside, the same gust of wind is being synthesized inside the building.

UNDOING ARCHITECTURE - WEATHER INSIDE

The installation Virtual Hole - Wind 1:1 is a part of a series of installations, entitled Virtual Holes and Virtual Mirrors. The series investigates the relationship between weather conditions and the built architecture in urban environment. By letting the outside weather phenomena indoors, or by mirroring them inside, Virtual Holes and Virtual Mirrors annihilate the protective function of architecture. They are undoing architecture in order to heighten our sensibility of the immediate surrounding, transforming the ephemeral and evanescent weather phenomena outside into significant and poetic events inside.

By directly influencing the interior, everyday weather phenomena such as rain, wind and sun gain metaphorical connotations, while built interior, being directly dependent on the external weather phenomena becomes unpredictable.

The goal of the series is to combine the installations embodying single weather phenomena in a single installation, where the outside weather will be synthesized inside (Planned for 2013).
