300 little handmade paper windwheels are spinning - not commonly wind
driven - but motorpowered. This huge number of machines that remind us of
children's toys have lost their innocence. They are occupying space like
a future vision of an alternative energy plant, all cabled and power
controlled. But instead of producing electricity by being obedient to
nature, they consume power and demonstrate an absurd scenario.
Playing with the symbols of child's innocence and opposing a natural
phenomenon to its artificial counterpiece this work discusses the
relation between indoor and outdoor, active and passive, nature and
civilisation.
