neopixel LED video matrix, kiln-fused borosilicate glass tube, white glass, steel, video

Using Beaufort’s Wind Force Scale, live video of the gallery and viewers is optically mixed with recorded video of autumn leaves blowing 7-12mph. Video is used for sensation, interaction and navigation.

Inspired by Inuit orienting practices, a sense of place and finding ones way is primarily understood by wind direction/speed felt by the body
