Aero Candy Floss explores the aerial nature of objects, which is rising, floating and eventually falling. This is connected with the mythological character Phoenix and its circle of life, but also with its ethereal existence. The main elevated factor was the use of fans, that were put into a variety of configurations along with different types of objects to test how they performed. Objects like stripes, balls and particles were tried but the best uncanny effect was from a cotton candy machine. The final project is performed using a cotton candy machine and a fan that suspends the cotton in the air. Moreover the position of the fan changes to direct the cotton candy towards the people near it.
The installation was part of the Demystify Remystify workshop and exhibition organized by Ruairi Glynn & Kinda Al Sayed at the UCL Bartllet in 2013 .
