If you want to take a running leap into this cloud of swirling packing peanuts, we won't judge you.

Check out this recent creation by Switzerland-based artist Zimoun, who uses everyday objects to create "hypnotic" scenes.

For this particular installation, Zimoun employed 36 ventilators and millions of pieces of packing peanuts.

The video was was filmed at the Art Museum of Lugano, which will be featuring his work until July 11, 2014.

Each window represents a separate room but, when filmed from the outside, the components blend together flawlessly.

For all its simplicity, Zimoun's work is incredibly hypnotic.

Case in point: Check out this piece from 2010, which makes use of 30,000 plastic bags and 16 fans.
