The Fujin Installation, developed by the Playtronica artist collective, is an interactive sound installation featuring a set of propellers connected to an impulse generator. Visitors are invited to experience Maurice Ravel’s Bolero without sound, utilizing skin sensors. Real-time conversion of the sound source into air movements is the basis of the installation. Inspired by the Japanese wind god Fujin, the installation seeks to investigate the interplay between sound, movement, and the environment. It has been tested within the deaf-blind communities and has inspired a novel approach to experiencing music.
