About [ Cycle-90° Air Stream ] by Kaoru Matsumoto

" This work uses “the movement of [air]” to create motion. [There are several gases mixed in what we call air; nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, argon, helium, and hydrogen. These gases, moving constantly, create the flow of air.] We usually experience the invisible flow of air as the sound of rustling branches in a forest, floating clouds and ripples in water. It is through our five senses that these reach our very souls. Since ancient times, the wind has moved sandy soil, formed climates, controlled population movements and guided people in the creation of cultures. This work gives concrete visual expression to that invisible presence, sometimes passive, sometimes moving depending on the wind, making it changeable and highly unpredictable. It is my hope that this will allow visitors to [this laboratory] and those who work there to feel first-hand the power of the wind, to focus on the movement of nature and interpret these messages from the Earth. Only then will this become a place where imagination takes flight. "
