Description : Tiresome Fan (พัดลมเบื่อขี้หน้า) is an interactive art, captured the funny idea: what if a fan doesn’t want us to get its cool wind. This artwork was recreated to have a reverse function of an ordinary fan – to move away whenever someone is in front of it. People may not even notice the movement at first, but after a while they will see that a fan never turns to them. However; if people are standing around the fan, or a person is following it around for a while, the fan will stop its propeller as there is no space to move away from these annoying humans, will start again if there is no one.
This artwork is one of “The Fan Collection”, which the concept came from the observation of how humans use things in daily life. The fan has been picked up as a subject because it is a household objects that can be found on every Thai residence. People use it as part of their life without noticing its existence. A fan is created to provide wind for people and make our lives more comfortable.
