Blowlight

Blowlight is a demonstrative installation of a concept for a new type of external building cladding that reacts directly to wind. Using a panel of sensors that pick up the movement and power of airflow, a unique pattern of ever-changing lights is triggered from a gentle breeze to a full-blown gale.

 

To encourage interaction and discussion, this prototype asks that the viewer provide the wind through close interaction by blowing on the sensors.
