With his “wind sculpture” WIND TUNNEL MODEL, Dombois poses questions that connect the unrestrictability of wind with the human urge for scientific understanding. >>

“When the wind blows, things change. This forces us to reflect. Our senses show us one part, a surface, an effect. Yet more lies behind, undisclosed. […] Will we be able to bear standing in the wind? Will we be able to accept that our way of thinking has flaws, that it deceives itself all too willingly? That we believe that we are thinking “independently” whereas in fact we are satisfying our personal patterns all too readily? […] Where is the wind when it isn’t blowing? Where is research when it isn’t doing research? Does it still exist then?” (Florian Dombois) >>
