| There are no photographs of the wind. Wind is perceived as movement or felt directly on the skin, but in a snapshot its effects disappear completely. In my series of experiments I try to record the motion of the wind with the help of a tiny light bulb attached to trees or plants. When photographed with long exposure times, the light bulb draws a fine line on the surface of the film. I have also let the trees and plants themselves work as wind recorders by giving them a piece of white paper to draw on with a marker pen attached to their branches.|
| A source of inspiration for my wind recordings have been the pictures of a French physiologist Etienne-Jules Marey, who in his scientific experiments at the end of 19th century used photography and graphic recording devices for the analyze of human and animal locomotion.|
