A 36 YEARS RECORDING OF LIFE

 

 

Every day Frigo assesses the wind. The following are the 8 values that he utilize to assess the wind from a most peaceful condition to a most windy one: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15 and 30. Almost unawarely then, as he perceive some wind against him and particularly against his face and ears, Frigo sets to type down the corresponding value on his smartphone. As the data collected in a day is later replayed in 30 seconds, daily, Frigo only collects a total amount of values corresponding to a dividend of 30 (e.g. 1,2,1,3,2 or 1,2,6,5,2,5,2,5,3,2 or 2).

In an installation context, these values are reproduced by a large fan of 360 centimeters in diameter and located high under a cupola-like structure. The fan could be seen as a wind powered generator that is in fact also affected by the wind filtering through the perforations corresponding to his emotional state (work 15). Using his own body as a sensor, Frigo has learned to predict and expect days with or without wind.
