Hundreds of Box Fans as Interactive Art

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  December 14, 2007

This unusual art installation took hundreds and hundreds of individual cooling fans, and tied them together with sensors that detect the movements of passersby to produce an amazing visual and sensory experience.

Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde worked with a team of technical wizards to create this mammoth interactive work entitled Flow 5.0. The display dynamically adjusts the speed and direction of the fans, reacting to visitors’ movements. The installation was constructed as two 10-meter-long walls which immerse visitors in the center of the artwork (and gives them a nice cool breeze while they’re at it).

Flow 5.0 is on display through January 3, 2008 at the Kapelica Gallery in Ljubljana, Slovenia. In other words, you probably won’t be seeing it up close and personal, so you’ll just have to live with this video clip instead.
