Wind Portal: An Interactive Installation Constructed out of Thousands of Paper Windmills

As part of the London Design Festival 2013, Lebanese designer Najla El Zein created "The Wind Portal", an interactive wind installation showcased at the V&A museum. Blurring the lines between art and design and using ordinary materials, El Zein folded thousands of paper windmills, a toy familiar from childhood, to create the gigantic moving structure. The portal is imposing in scale, yet largely made of paper it also delicate and ephemeral. El Zein told Dezeen, "Our intervention focuses on the transition between two spaces, an inside and outside space. The proximity of the installation with visitors means they can go through it, touch it, stand there and interact with it."
