Guiavane - Wind Jam
This creature is part guitar part windmill. Created as part of a wind-powered musical band.
This device with seven other wind-powered musical instruments were used for site specific recordings of air flows around Embassy Court our current home.
Embassy Court [a 10 story 1930's Modernist block] is locally known for the strange wind patterns it creates due to its monstrous scale compared to its regency neighbors on Brighton sea front.
The Band amplified the air flow patterns of the building.
Wind Jam was awarded 1st prize in the 2d and 3d visual arts, Brighton Fringe Festival 2008.
The project was generously funded by Bluestorm, the tenant association of Embassy Court.
With great Thanks to Sue Milnthorpe for project management and production.
