Norbert Francis Attard’s "Feeling Wind" in Germany

A wind driven turbine ventilator producing fresh ambient air at zero operating cost, Norbert Francis Attard’s interactive sculpture, Feeling Wind relies on centrifugal force triggered by the slightest draft to induce outward airflow. The resulting negative pressure inside the sculpture’s 28’ d x 20’h aluminum pipe, forces air from outside to rush in to maintain equilibrium.

The interactive work is designed to accommodate people of any height who can enter the pipe through the 16”-wide opening to enjoy the strong sensation of wind created by the continuous cycle of ventilation. 

Feeling Wind will be on view at the Windpark Söhrewald in Kassel, Germany through August 31.
