Blow Up – Breath amplifiers

Scott Snibbe’s “Blow Up” – “Blow Up records, amplifies, and projects human breath into a room-sized field of wind. The installation comprises two devices. The first is a rectangular array of twelve small impellers, which stands on a table on one side of the gallery. This small input device is electronically linked to a large wall of twelve electric fans, which divides the gallery in half. Each tabletop impeller is spatially and temporally synchronized to a corresponding fan in the wall, so that the speed and relative movements of each impeller are replicated by the fans’ speeds and movements.” [via] – Link.
