Blue painter's tape is stuck to the floor in concentric half-circles. The ends of each piece are left curling up, which happens as a result of tearing it off the roll. An oscillating fan is placed on the opposite side of the room. The breeze from the fan circulates throughout the room, gently stirring the curls of the tape.
Here, a shop fan is used to keep an umbrella aloft. The umbrella is made out of a reflective "emergency" blanket, and is tethered to the frame below by strands of monofilament. A spot light shines directly down onto the umbrella which refracts the light around the room as it dances about, straining to maintain it's equilibrium.
