Ventus Solaris consists of taut strings that form a wavy structure where the density of lines increases and decreases according to the position of the viewer. The idea is that a ruled surface is formed when a straight line moves through space. The artwork is made of fishing line and metal rod.

The work originates from a cross-disciplinary course Crystal Flowers in Halls of Mirrors: Mathematics meets Art and Architecture held in Aalto University.
