Wind Sensor Proposed for New York: Two artists' proposed wind sensor would also generate energy.
by Blaine Brownell
"The natural human curiosity about weather and other changing climatic conditions is addressed in "Scene Sensor," a project proposed by artists James Murray and Shota Vashakmadze for Freshkills Park, New York. The winning entry to the Land Art Generator Initiative design competition, Scene Sensor is a simple open-air pavilion that harnesses wind power via a piezoelectric wire mesh that converts moving air into energy. This mesh also incorporates lighting to depict wind maps at night, and will act as a billboard that visualizes invisible natural forces."
