“Aeolian Sculptures”
Benaki museum Main Building |

by: Stratos Kavalieratos

An installation by artist Stratos Kavalieratos located outdoors at the Main Building of the Benaki Museum: sculptures that convert wind energy into motion and provide an unanticipated visual diversion. 

These Aeolian sculptures, as the artist calls them, were worked in wood, using machinery parts, and studded with small light bulbs, which are switched on by the movement of the propellers, whenever the wind blows. After the sun sets, visual contact with the sculptures is lost, and all that remains is a multi-coloured rotating disk.
“It’s an unusual and unprecedented form of art, that won’t allow you to become bored. Your eyes focus on the multi-coloured circles and is enchanted by them” the artist notes
