Blow is an interactive light installation.
A large dark matte disk is embedded with LED lights and an ubiquitous folded pinwheel toy in its centre, bringing back childhood memories.
To activate Blow, the user stands close to create an intimate relationship with the installation. By blowing on the pinwheel, a turbine senses the strength of the spinning pinwheel and LED`s light up accordingly, dispersing light in an elegant array.
If the pinwheel spins fast enough, the object stays lit up until the next interaction.
