Chinese student creates art installation that displays wind-energy generation in real time
Art does not necessarily need to stay static and never-changing. Instead, with a little bit of innovation and a whole lot of creativity, art can be mixed with modern-day technology to churn out installations that are eye-catching and pretty useful too! Jiavu Liu, a student at the Royal College of Art (RCA), designed one such installation called the Within Invisibility, which is essentially an LED installation that reacts to wind pattern data collected from 40 Chinese cities in real time!
The Within Invisibility concept is made up of 80 fans, each with 11 blue LED lights installed on its blades. By reading six hours of previously collected data material and converting it all into a six-second rhodonea curve, this concept gives viewers a peek at how much wind energy has been collected across 40 Chinese cities everyday! All in all, this one’s visually appealing and is aesthetically as well as practically valuable!
