Hector Zamora‘s work is alive. It is animated by its surroundings, often by the actual air in which it exists. The use of air, or wind, as a material creates a direct interaction between the work and its site; a wind-powered piece is ultimately site-specific. Further, it forms a specific relationship between the viewer and the piece.
