Artist Zimoun Creates a Roiling Ocean of Packaging Peanuts inside the Windows of an Art Museumby.
Swiss artist Zimoun has produced this large installation inside the windows of the Museo d’Arte di Lugano in Switzerland. Titled 36 Ventilators, the artwork relies on large fans that continuously blow clouds of packaging peanuts against the museum’s large windowframes. At night the effect is especially eye-popping as it appears the entire space is filled with a turbulent white sea.
As an art student, you’re hit over the head repeatedly with Renaissance art, so I’ve gotten a little tired of it, but something I’m not tired of is the seemingly impossible naturalistic detail attained from stone and a chisel back then.
