      the way it glides around, it reminded me of the angels/ghosts at the end of "Raiders of the Lost Ark"

    Pretty cool, then you realise your watching something so simple and you wonder why/how it inspires you :S.. then you feel kinda stupid!

  • Djz

    Now, hand out some mushrooms and that would be one bad ass sheet of fabric. Otherwise, it is a sheet of fabric.

  • Turrebo

    First time I like fan art.

  • Tommy

    Eat mushrooms then try this at home….omg!!!

  • Lolasaurus

    I work in an art handling company… The shit I see every day doesn't compare to this awesome piece… This piece is not only beautiful but it's intelligent :) (positioning of fans, vortices, number of fans, color of fabric, weight of fabric and lighting)

      ..and as an experiment in studying randomness!! That is what is so mesmerizing to me the unpredictable-ness. I felt a comfort in the randomness whereas in my daily life I spend more than a little bit of energy trying to limit the randomness and unpredictability.

    If a redneck went down in his basement, set up a bunch of fans, threw in a paper towel, and played "Devil Went Down To Georgia" he would be a redneck.

    However, this guy exchanges the paper towel for a red sheet and plays seedy piano music in the background and he's an artist.

    I turned on my dishwasher and videotaped the water gallivanting around a composite box. Can i pick up the label "Artist"?

    • Anna

      dude… grow up.

  • Ron

    i've never wanted a Fruit Roll-Up so badly in my life.

    • Blahhhh!!
