Colors of the Wind
We cannot see the wind, we can only see its effects. Due to its invisibility and evasiveness, wind is a natural element that tinges what it touches with a luster of poetry. Colors of the Wind is a playful and weightless landscape that capitalizes on this condition and visualizes wind through a field of swiveling colored wind turbines.
A park is a place where people go to be surrounded by natural occurrences. Thus, a landfill does not become a park until it is able to provide for such occurrences. By emphasizing the presence of the wind, this proposal will help Fresh Kills become a park as a place to experience the wind as it becomes visible by a field of turbines.
