Driving home over the Waterville Plateau, a waxing sliver of a moon that fell early below the horizon made for a perfect moment of stargazing. What was even more eerie though, was that the wind had completely stopped also. Even from about 30 feet up a small embankment I could hear my shutter trip for a 25-second exposure. The lights on the horizon, shining from over 70 miles away, were the city lights of Ephrata and Moses Lake, Washington.

Driving back from Moab, Utah, an impending tornado made us exit the highway and wait at the gas station. These two sat out on the curb watching the tornado come closer and closer until they couldn’t remain exposed for any longer.

Aeolus – Acoustic Wind Pavillion

Aeolus is a new architectural space designed for the public to contemplate the UK landscape; to make audible the silent shifting patterns of the wind and to visually amplify the ever changing sky. An investigation into acoustics, wind, architecture and light, Aeolus was inspired by Luke Jerram’s research trip to Iran where he explored the mosques of Esfahan and interviewed a Qanat desert well digger about his life. The well digger spoke of the wells singing in the wind.

Aeolus is designed to resonate and sing with the wind without any electrical power or amplification.

Once completed, the temporary building will tour the windy hill tops of the UK, before being installed as permanent artwork, somewhere in the UK. Unlike the prototype (see images above) the final artwork will have a steel internal structure that can be quickly assembled and disassembled on site. The tubes will then slot into this underlying framework.
