Winds of Change is an interactive spinning object that is made up of metal, wood, cloth, sensors, audio chips, and mikes. As a whirling device, Winds of Change intends for people to receive and send signals through sound and spoken word. Participant-viewers are encouraged to blow at the object, which will then spin as it gather winds, ready to transmit sound and vibrations.
In this ritual interaction, the viewer writes and records their yearnings into the spinning device, which in turn echoes in loops, and accumulates a collective intention over time. Its goal is to ask ‘How many spins does it take to make a revolution?’
