“The wind shows us how close to the edge we are,” writes the great Californian writer Joan Didion. Indeed, the wind feels stronger when we are on the verge of change. The faster we run to push the boundaries, the more we sense the world changing. Winds of LA is the most recent series of artworks in Refik Anadol’s Studio’s Wind AI Data Sculpture series, Refik Anadol Studio’s long-term wind-inspired research project to combine cutting-edge technological innovation with ever-changing artistic expression. Winds of LA harnesses a vast dataset from real-time API weather sensors placed around LA that collect wind speed, direction, gust patterns, and temperature. The artwork streams data into experimental fluid motion aesthetics – a unique visual interpretation of the fluidity of interactions between the environment and the city. Specifically designed for the LA audience, Winds of LA aims to connect them with the patterns of invisible natural events.
