Luke Jerram: Aeolus. Acoustic Wind Pavilion

Aeolus was ruler of the four winds in Greek mythology. Luke Jerrams’s Aeolus, is an acoustic and optical pavilion designed to make audible the silent shifting patterns of the wind and to visually amplify the ever changing sky.

Beneath the arch a viewer can look out through a field of 310 internally polished stainless steel tubes simultaneously, each of which draws the landscape of light through the structure whilst humming at a series of low frequencies. These light pipes act to frame, invert and magnify the landscape around the pavilion enabling the viewer to contemplate an ever changing landscape of light. As the clouds and sun move across the sky throughout the day, the visual experience for the public will dramatically alter minute by minute, hour by hour.

Aeolus is on display at MediaCity, Salford (27 August – 10 September) and the Eden Project, Cornwall (from 16th September).
