Installation with 2 Ventilators, 2013

Ventilators, steel ropes, mechanism
variable dimensions

Installation with 2 Ventilators by Roman Signer is a kinetic sculpture which consists of two wind machines oscillating in the longitudinal direction of the room. In this performance, they approach and touch on each other’s plane ‘surface’, before they slowly part again. Running through a time-switch control system, which was especially programed by our engineers both in Switzerland and China, the delicate work was installed hanging on 2-meter-long thin steel ropes, down from an 8-meter-high coffered ceiling in a historically listed space of Shanghai’s Bund 18 building in 2013.
