Sculpture gives voice to the wind [VIDEO]


It takes a certain kind of soul to hear the music of Mother Nature, so Luke Jerram decided to give the old lady a hand with his sculpture, Aeolus.

Inspired by the story of a well digger in Iran who claimed the wells in the Qanat desert sang, Jerram began some digging of his own to explore the the relationship between acoustics, engineering and aeordynamics with some help from researchers at the University of Southampton and the University of Salford.

The unique sculpture gets its name from the Greek god who ruled the four winds and is currently looking for a permanent home once its traveling days are over.
