The Land Art Generator Initiative: WindNest

Geschreven op 14-1-2011 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Energie en Besparing Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

wn1Simultaneously embedded in the landscape and floating in the air, WindNest is a macro scale land art installation that harnesses wind and sun energy for performative effects.

The multi-stranded system grows from the subtle dunescape at the site, allowing for raised viewing platforms as well as erosion protection and habitat corridors.

Hovering above and on the verge of take-off, a network of windsock turbines dynamically registers wind movement across the field, producing both energy and atmospheric effects.

wn2The pragmatic, performative aspects of WindNest are provided through two means of energy collection. One third of the windsocks are covered with solar fabric. In addition, each of the windsocks is fitted with an energy collection turbine.

The proposal utilizes low-impact, lightweight materials chosen in consideration of the full life-cycle of the project from material production to construction, maintenance and even after its role as a public art installation.

Although the project covers a large area creating a big visual impact, the effects are achieved through humble means.

wn4The nested elements are intended to be hand-woven by local craftspeople. Utilizing regionally harvested materials and human resources, the project proposes to engage the local craft economy, using natural materials and minimizing shipping, contributing to a low environmental footprint.

Illusively thin carbon rods embedded in the ground as piles will tether a structural net composed of TENARA (Teflon) fibers. The ropes, which are UV resistant, will ensure strength over time, but are incredibly thin, having an ethereal and lightweight presence. Source: Land Art Generator Initiative

    WindNest Prototype Being Installed at the Living Product Expo

    WindNest is designed by Trevor Lee of Suprafutures to passively rotate to face the wind just like a weather vane. To test the functionality and to experiment with the ball bearing mechanism design, a prototyping team under the direction of GTK Flow Analysis fabricated this 1/4 scale model and subjected it to a series of tests under different wind conditions and speed sequences.

    The full-scale installation will incorporate a slip ring to allow for continuous rotation while conducting the electricity produced by the turbines and solar fabric.

    The prototype also provides the opportunity to experiment with the structure of the cloud pods and will assist with the design of the fabric skin.
