Light:Wind was a four week project to illustrate the changes of wind speed and direction recorded through long exposure photography. The device was designed and manufactured at 1:1 scale.
All components were laser cut from MDF and interlock to not require any adhesive. The device could be transported to site, assembled, used, disassembled and transported again quickly and easily.
After sourcing a treadmill motor to be used as a 12v dynamo for lighting the LED strip lights, the frame was created to both house the dynamo and blades.
The initial brief stated that the device must fit within a suitcase, due to the size of the electrical components, the scale of the device gradually increased.
The project demonstrates a full understanding of creating a design which is feasible working at detail scale.
