Wind Language

Whenever any one thinks about wind in southern California, we do not really care about it unless its the dangerous santa Ana’s. This is why when the opportunity to create a wind machine came along, I was really interested in developing one.  The thought process was fun because, how does someone go about recording wind movement? Well i started with large surface areas that could be moved by the wind like the sails of a boat. Continued with light materials and gears to loose friction between the various parts. At the base I concluded with three drawing pencils to record the circular motion that the over all machine would create. Overall the machine had good recordings, showed different wind directions and frequencies. DSC_0121
