Artist Zimoun Unleashes a Plastic Storm Inside of a Museum

Swiss artist Zimoun has recently unleashed a "plastic storm" inside of the Museo d'Arte di Lugano in an impressive installation entitled 36 Ventilators, 4.7m3 Packing Chips. The kinetic artwork features a plethora of styrofoam peanuts and large fans that blow them against the museum's broad window frames. Zimoun's work really shines at night when it appears like we're witnessing a tempestuous white sea.

Nine of the museum's towering windows were turned into "ventilation chambers," with four ventilators installed in each window. Ubiquitously-found packing chips fill the space, and it seems that you don't have to use fancy components to create work that's dynamic and engaging for the viewer.

Zimoun's installation is fascinating partially because of its unpredictability. Although we might have an idea of what happens when the blustery air hits the light-weight peanuts, these small pieces don't follow any sort of routine. We instead embrace this lack of control as we would a natural storm, and let ourselves be mesmerized.
