On earth the wind consists of the bulk movement of air, in it a collision takes place between the molecules the air is constructed of. The chain-reaction between these molecules results in the dynamic process that shapes the patterns of the wind. Windveld is a large scale kinetic installation inspired by those patterns. The installation is comprised of 150 “wind tumblers”, each able to bend and rotate according to the force and direction of the wind. The field reveals itself as a kinetic self-organizing system that is in a constant dialogue with the forces of nature.

Concept and realisation: Joris strijbos, Jeroen Molenaar and Daan Johan
