Armed with 36 ventilators and a ton of packing chips, Bern based artist Zimoun has created a violent storm inside of the Art Museum of Lugano in Switzerland. Looking in from the outside of nine enormous museum windows, it would appear that the whole building is about to erupt. Yet from the inside, the illusion of the installation becomes evident as all the polystyrene has been sequestered into neatly constructed “ventilation chambers.” See the illusion play out in the video below:
