I performed a serial poem on a windmill theme at Arts Catalyst's Great Glen Airshow, at H-I-C-A (Loch Ruthven, Scotland). This small turbine has always been one I have most admired, for its perfect form. It supplies power to Dalcrombie House.

A wet audience huddled around the Dalcrombie turbine. As the poet read the pages turned to papier-mache mush in the rain.
Amongst the aerial themed projects, performances and events were Susanne Nørregård Nielsen's suprematist kites, which took some time to rise through the damp air, but eventually caught hold of the breeze.

I am currently in the early stages of developing a new project relating to renewable energy & windmills with Arts Catalyst, in collaboration with Alistair Peebles. Details will follow in a future blog.
