Blowlight, Concept Design & Development, 2011

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 movment 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 invites the viewer to provide the air through close interaction by blowing on the sensors.
