This is the Windmill I made with Charity for Burning Man '97. It
moved gently to face the wind, turned slowly, sat by the man on the
desert floor, and burned fast.
A freind I never met shot a
beautiful picture of the windmill and put it on
Here's a nice photo of the windmill that I
stole from the
including Charity, Lise Swenson and me, and a Satan impersonator.
I did another windmill at Tire Beach for the
Sound Effects Festival in June, '98. It had a contact mike in it,
and was a stunningly rich sound source. Bill of
Here Are the Facts You
Requested ran sound processing for it. I was surprised to find
out on the web. In July, Bodil and I
attached a bigger
windmill to an island near same location.
I submitted a proposal to Secession
Gallery to put up four windmills in and around the lagoon that is
between 101 and the Caltrain tracks just south of Candlestick Point,
heading into San Francisco. They ultimately rejected it, but t's
worth looking at. I did some photoshop "what ifs". I still plan on
putting up a windmill or two.
Here's another proposal, this one for a windmill in Point Arena, California.
Though we spent most of the time working on the airplane, Bodil and I
set up a windmill for our themecamp, "F-Space", at Burning Man, 1998.
It featured a Danish Flag as the back sail, which attracted a steady
stream of Danes to our camp. Here's a
shot by Dawn Neal featuring the windmill
and the airplane after it wrecked.
Here is the saga of a really good windmill on Tire Beach that Bodil and I built on the Vernal Equinox, 1999.
We finally got around to putting one up on our roof.
