An invisible motion of air, we experience wind indirectly; we see what it moves but never the wind itself. The wind stirs things around us to reveal distant atmospheric conditions, connecting the movement of weather systems over the North sea to the feeling of the breeze on your face.

Air Pockets are a set of wind vanes weighted to show both where the wind is coming from and where it’s going to. The shapes are based on researchers pointing hands in the Hydraulic Laboratory at the Technical University of Denmark. Pointing hands as arrows try to show what can’t be seen, telling us what to look at and where to look. The work points into and with the wind, shifting constantly in response to the surroundings, attempting to reveal something just out of sight.
