January 2017 - British artist Luke Jerram’s take on Aeolus, ruler of the four winds in Greek mythology, is an acoustic and optical pavilion designed to make the shifting patterns of the wind sing. The futuristic sounds produced by the giant aeolian harp are generated from 310 internally polished stainless steel tubes, many of which contain strings that hum with the wind.

English fabricator Crown International rolled and welded each tube with no weld penetration visible from inside. The pipes act to frame, transpose and enhance the landscape around the pavilion, enabling the viewer to consider the landscape transformed by light. After a tour of the United Kingdom, the Aeolus found a permanent home at the Airbus aircraft manufacturing facilities in Bristol, England.
