“En Plein Vol”

Featured Video Play Icon

Artist Antoine Terrieux’s “En Plein Vol” exhibit shows off the power of hair dryers. Parts of the exhibit, like the floating ball at 0:16, rely on Bernoulli’s principle and the moving stream of air the dryers generate. Others, like the smoke tornado at 0:39 or the (suspended) paper airplane at 0:56, use the hair dryers to generate vorticity essential to the installation. It’s a neat concept and very well executed.
