Art installation made up of hundreds of case fans is full of air

Taking the all-fan casemod to the next (il)logical extreme, Dutch art concerns Studio Roosegaarde has built a 10-meter long corridor out of hundreds of fans called Flow 5.0. The installation, which is currently on display at the TodaysArt festival in Rotterdam, is controlled by several microphones and other sensors, allowing the speed and direction of the fans to respond to passing visitors -- or, in the words of the artists, "By walking and interacting
an illusive landscape of transparencies and artificial winds is created." Hmm, and here we were sort of hoping to get one of these to dry off after a shower. Check a video of the install after the break.
