heliosphere [2003]



...is a boxed/framed construction which houses 5 leaves taken from a 3rd century Zen temple in Nagoya, Japan. The environment contains a mini web server with custom electronics, a motor controller and a small fan. Viewers literally visit the box itself and by accessing the internal website and toggling a button one controls the activity of the fan which in turn gently blows the leaves with the spectral breeze of the net.
heliosphere is the name for solar wind...
