The Mirage

The installation of mine, based on the idea of using scientific principle to decrease the temperature so that people can have a experience of coolness in a hot summer day in Chelsea Pier.


Comfort levels
* The typical temperature range for summer is

24°C (75 °F) to 29 °C (84 °F)

  • The Extrame temperature for summer might up to 35 °C (96.8°F)

The device would harness the process of evaporative cooling.

There are three pumps go into the water . I will utilize solar energy push water up and spray on the top of my installation to keep the cooling pads which inside the wall damp.

When hot , dry air come through these pads, liquid water will be evaporated to vapour. The process can absorb heat and then decrease the temperature.
