Wind Power

Tuomo Kangasmaa

This video installation is composed of two video channels: a windmill and a sine graph. The soundtrack is created using the authentic sound of a running windmill. Wind and electricity are both phenomena that are hard to detect without any observational aid. In the installation, the windmill image visualizes the blowing wind and the sine graph creates a visual reflection of electricity. Together these images create a simple model of power production – and how wind is transformed into an everyday commodity.
