Pen (0.1) on drawing board

Whether it was to move the first ships across the Atlantic Ocean, or to reclaim land by the use of windmills, the wind has always aided humankind in many of its endeavors. Though one can be certain of its presence, its force, direction and continuity are unpredictable. No longer is it solely a secret whispered in the ear of a witness, but this machine records the energy of the wind, drawing visual proof of its existence. Motion is delicately gestured by a suspended pen, creating space on paper according to the wind’s strength, flow, and exchange between gravity. Each drawing exhibits a specific time frame of wind. Naturally, due to ever changing parameters, each drawing is the unique representation of an instance.
