9th Mercosul Bienal, 2013

Fan Fascinator was created for the 9th Mercosul Bienal's call for Home Inventions (devices that provide a solution for the home). Fan Fascinator is a kinetic sculpture built around my ceiling fan that gently moves and ruffles with the fan's wind. A combination baby mobile and chandelier, the sculpture is meant to create sweet dreams.

The 9th Mercosul Bienal requested instructional videos in a DIY format to share projects and process in an invitation for pedagogical exchange. In addition to the sculpture and video, I also created a kit with materials, instructions and a small example which enthusiasts can order or download at www.fanfasincator.com
