Wind Organ - Nanjing

Wind Organ - Nanjing (currently in design phase)
Planned for a 45-hectare park Jean-Bernard Métais has been working on since 2012, this piece was inspired by the high winds that sweep its site. Arranged in an ellipse 80 metres long, 1888 rods varying in height from 1.8 to 4.8 metres work like aeolian flutes, producing an almost continuous warbling. At night an interactive system of anemometers and optical fibres brings the luminous tips of the rods to life in a wonderland of changing colours.
