Dutch artist Arno Scheper is working with air as an artistic medium since several years. He invited me to build something For an “Air machines” show, that he organized in an abandoned shop front in The Hague. As I wanted the visitors to perceive the core medium of the show right at the beginning, I decided to set up a special entrance situation:
A wind tunnel which you have to pass, when entering the exhibition.
The exhibition space had two doors, which brought me to the idea for the installation. I built the tunnel between those two doors. One door served as the entrance (and exit) of the show. The other door was filled with three large industrial fans which were pushing air into the tunnel. A door at the end of the tunnel finally lead to the exhibition space.
I want to thank Arno Scheper for inviting me to participate in this show!
