Project Turbogolf (from 2019)

This arose out of observations of the various, and often unquestioned ways, in which rural and semi-rural landscapes are utilised and transformed, and the thought-experiment that golf courses could be converted into wind farms. Several works have been produced connected with this theme. Toy and model wind turbines were ordered with a view to incorporating these into experiments. A short looping film was produced, which combines motifs related to wind-farms and golf, with a soundtrack composed of recordings of actual turbines in motion. More recent activity (work in progress) has included making submissions on Tripadvisor for golf links, courses and resorts, with mock-up images showing wind turbines installed.
