The Spice Winds installation at VIVID 2016 is a collaboration between ourselves and Dutch designers Castor Bours and Wouter Widdershoven (Toer). Our theme was the relationship between the Netherlands and Australia which goes back 400 years to early exploration by Dutch explorers of the Australian coastline often on their way to the Spice Islands (now Indonesia). We use way finding lights moved by wind direction indicators illuminating the surrounds and viewers.
