VIRTUAL HOLE - WIND (2008)
Ventilators, wind sensors, custom-made software, wind.
Virtual Hole - Wind is a spatial intervention, sensing the wind outside and by employing digital technology and ventilators, synthesizing it inside. Every time wind blows against the wind sensor on the roof, the same gust of wind is being synthesized inside. The wind is blowing inside.
The installation Virtual Hole - Wind 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 ephemeral and evanescent phenomena outside into significant and poetic events inside.
