Les vents contraires I

(contrary winds I)

4 air hand-made wind socks, 4 fans

"The windsail, also called wind sock, is a strange object that intends to indicate the direction of the wind and to measure its speed. But in the installation that the artist imagined,the hand-made wind sock is connected with a fan, and both rotate at the same rhythm and at the same speed, without interruption. In this work, it is not the wind that starts or stops the process, but the human hand who can plug in or unplug the fan. The winds are domesticated, the man keeps the elements under control, and gets even with the laws of nature. The Vents Contraires are a reflexion about the control of the environment by man." production Spazio Amaneï, salina island, Eole island
