Book Two Balloons One Fan

Event Art Installation

Daniel is an outstanding artist, who has created a unique series of shows using air flow. The Air series of sculptures and room-sized installations involves lightweight materials such as bird feathers, flower petals, Styrofoam peanuts, fabric, balloons, soap bubbles, fog, fire or ordinary litter from the street that are trapped, and continuously fly in columns or vortices of open air. This show will make a huge impact at any function, whether it is a private party or a corporate event.

Work from the Air series is spare and poetic, largely due to its use of humble materials. Propelled into motion by something that is invisible, the aerodynamic properties of these materials, and the underlying order within these inherently chaotic airflow systems are revealed in a way that can be continuously observed.

Two Balloons One Fan, two balloons are suspended and trapped in a vortex of air generated by a single fan pointed straight upward. A dance of sorts, or contest between them is created as they continually vie for the most stable position in this vertical air column. As an example of Bernoulli’s Principle of fluid dynamics in action, because the air in the centre of the column is moving faster than the air towards the outside, it has lower pressure. And just as the top side of an airplane wing is lifted into the sky the balloons are perpetually sucked back into the middle of the air stream as they simultaneously try to escape.
