Vayu-Vata  consists of four Aeolian harps, which borrow their name from two Indo-Iranian words that, when combined, can mean either wind & atmosphere, or space & time. Built according to an old and most common Aeolian harp design, the harps were placed on the public roof of the new SAF museum. The Vayu-Vata harps are played by the wind and provide a harmonic composition of sound.
