Visualize the Breeze
From designer sugiX comes “The visualization art of the breeze”
This piece aims to represent the movement of air with balloons that are illuminated when caught in an air current. The balloons seem to filled with helium or some lighter than air gas (no explanation was given “design secret”) When they are still, no light is emitted. When in motion they glow blue. The intensity of the light emitted depends on the strength of the breeze.
For this display at Tokyo Designers Week, the audience was led into a dark room. There they were treated to a swarm of calming blue lights floating about them.
SugiX aims to make this design into to some form of product. I look forward to seeing how these would be used.
