Aeolian Landscape

by Ned Kahn

Aeolian Landscape presents a swirling storm of sand inside a large chamber covered by plexiglass top. A knob on the top of the exhibit rotates a sturdy fan set in the base of the chamber. As you turn the fan, the sand inside begins to swirl and accumlate in patterns suggestive of a desert landscape as if seen from high above.
