Helena Doyle, in collaboration with Dan Birch, will create an immersive and interactive installation inspired by the traditional Hanami festival in Japan where people gather in Springtime to enjoy the transient beauty of the Cherry Blossoms.
Zephyr means a soft gentle breeze and comes from the Greek ‘God of the west wind’ Zephuros. The viewer is invited to take on the role of Zephros by turning a windmill made of giant fans, generating a light breeze. The dreamy iridescent material draped across the gallery ceiling will billow in the breeze, changing colours as it moves.
The visitors will also have the opportunity to make their own fans to take home. This playful, sensory installation encourages the audience to come together and look skyward.
