Wind and Tide - Commission

A 2 part installation based on the form of historic sailing ships that brought goods from the coast 80 miles away that brought goods from the coast, 80 miles away, to ware-houses in Gainsborough for re-distribution. An anemometer and a sonic device record changes in wind speeds and tidal levels and these are shown accumulatively by coloured neon lights on the 2 masts which are 7000mm tall. Commissioned for Gainsborough Regeneration and funded by the National Lottery via the Arts Council England.
