Simultaneously embedded in the landscape and floating in the air, WindNest is a macro-scale land art installation that harnesses wind and sun energy for performative effects. The multi-stranded system grows from the subtle dunescape at the site, allowing for raised viewing platforms as well as erosion protection and habitat corridors.  Hovering above, a network of windsock turbines dynamically registers wind movement across the field, producing both energy and atmospheric effects.
