Sculptural Sound Chamber Sings When the Wind Blows
"Luke Jerram’s new artistic venture, an acoustic pavilion that sings when the breeze blows by it. The project is named Aeolus after the Greek God of the wind, and it will employ hundreds of light tubes outfitted like Aeolian harps. Each pipe, or harp, has strings in it and as the wind passes over the structure in different directions the wind will strike chords in various parts of the circular structure. The art piece will travel all over the UK to windy summits and play a concerto of nature in each location."
