Created by WOW Inc and programmed by Takashi Aoki and Fumihito Anzai, Bloom Skin is an installation for the display window of Elttob Tep Issey Miyake. The project is comprised a very light and thin cloth ‘organdie’ with 8 fans controlling the waving in the air.
Using openFrameworks app, the 8 fans produce varying amount of uplift to create a wave effect of the 16m long installation. At every 4 or so meters the fabric is fixed to the vertical cables providing enough horizontal constraint for the wave to move in the desired direction.
