follow the wind

How would you like arrows for weathercocks – creating geometrical patterns on the outer walls of your house or your building!

This is Daikanyama Installation 2005 РGrand Prix Winning entry by Daisuke Ibano and Ryosuke Fujii

“Blowin’in the wind”

In order to perceive the traces of the wind, Daisuke Ibano and Ryosuke Fujii have filled a mesh screen installed on the wall of a building on the Sanno Institute of Management Daikanyama campus with a number of arrows. The arrows point in respective directions as the wind blows and rest in balance as the wind stops.

Daikanyama, located in the south-west district of Tokyo, is a pleasant town where the wind blows through the architectural spaces between and within dispersed buildings.

During the exhibition, the arrows have succeeded in recording the traces of the wind as they have created a variety of geometrical forms on the mesh screen of the building.

Materials: PVC sheet, acrylic panel, stainless steel screw
