The installation consists of three light objects. Two of them are connected to the RSS feed via computers, and the third, with the aid of the anemometer, provides wind, temperature, noise of street (environment). The computer searches for all words related to the concept of ‘fear’ (for the first sculpture) and ‘desire’ (for the second) in the RSS. The more such words appear, the brighter are the object’s LEDs progressing from the base of object to the top. The third object is based on the same principle.
The viewer can walk inside the actual construction where an additional airspeed sensor is located. When she/he blows on it, the pattern of illumination changes — the simple act of breathing becomes visible and important.
