Wind Reactive Facades by Ned Kahn

November 15, 2008

Ned Kahn makes works that revolve around the elements. His section of wind-related works are really inspiring to me. He uses huge numbers of small, aluminum pieces that flap in the wind to create dazzling visualizations of the wind passing over the surfaces of buildings.

Wind LED Installation by Jason Bruges Studio

November 14, 2008

This project, made by London-based Jason Bruges Studio, pairs one LED with one mini-wind turbine. The turbines generate the power to light the LEDs. Many units are installed in a small area to give a visualization of the wind.

String with Taylor

From Agnes Martin’s “The Untroubled Mind”

November 3, 2008


In early childhood, when the mind is untroubled, is when
inspiration is most possible.
The little child just sitting in the snow
The education of children- social development is contradictory
to aesthetic development.
Nature is conquest, possession
eating sleeping procreation
It is not aesthetic, not the kind
of inspiration I’m interested in
Nature is the wheel
When you get off the wheel you’re looking out
You stand with your back to the turmoil
You never rest with nature, it’s a hungry thing
Every animal you meet is hungry
Not that I don’t believe in eating
But I just want to make a distinction between art and eating
This painting I like because you can get in there and rest
The satisfaction of appetite happens to be impossible
The satisfaction of appetite is frustrating
So it’s always better to be a little bit hungry
That way you contradict the necessity
Not that I’m for asceticism
but the absolute trick in life is to find rest.
If there’s life in the composition it stimulates your life moments
your happy moments, your brain is stimulated.

FireFly LED Video

October 31, 2008

This sculpture is made up of 210 LEDs, each with its own switch. The switches are made of bent wires that hang through holes in the sculpture’s metal structure. The LEDs are all connected to power, and the hanging wires become grounded when they touch the sides of the structure. As the wind blows over the sculpture, the switches turn on at different times, based on the strength of the wind.

Fun With Magnets

October 26, 2008

Yesterday I showed my piece, the Pasta Cycle, at Sony Wondertechnology Lab. There were big groups of kids who came around and played with it. They invented a game, trying to see who could be the first one to catch one of the magnets as it spins in a circle through the marbles. I had a really good time watching them and playing their game.
