CURRENT is a set of illuminated elements along the front and rear cheeks of a set of 20 beach chalets along the East coast of the UK. A number of cedar slats which clad the huts are replaced with white lighting elements that react dynamically to local wind speed – animating and visualizing the energy of the wind. A wind turbine is installed near the chalets, and this system provides all the energy required to drive the artwork.  Co-created with Laura Harrington.
