WIND, RECORDED

The wind of a certain day and place was recorded – not with a microphone but with a wind wheel connected to a dynamo. The generated electronic signal is played in the exhibition space, thereby reproducing the wind of that day on a big fan. Essential for the work is its capability of recording a ephemeral natural phenomenon - like the wind - and transferring it to another place. Whilst the recording process highly abstracts the event, it still evokes mental images of that event in the viewer. At the same time the work questions the role of similarity in the relationship between an object and its representation.
