Making Things Interactive

Flow 5.0

Artist Dan Roosegaarde’s latest installation consists of a 10-meter corridor of ventilator fans controlled by sensors, which react to the sound and motion of visitors passing through them. Following is a statement from the Studio Roosegaarde:

Flow 5.0 is an interactive sculpture made out of hundreds of ventilators which are reacting to your sound and motion. By walking and interacting an illusive landscape of transparencies and artificial winds is created. Moving through Flow 5.0 the visitor becomes conscious of himself as a body, in a dynamic relation with space and technology.

Wish I can find more information on the circuitry and sensors that are working the fans. Other than that, it looks like pretty neat response installation.
