More on wind turbines art and poetry – Alec Finlay
Artist poet Alec Finlay has worked extensively to explore through art poetry and thought, wind turbines and their place within culture, history, science, the environment and as objects akin to standing stones within the landscape.
Any artist, poet, actually anyone, considering wind turbines, alternative energy production, landscape and the environment should look at Alec’s work which engages at a much deeper level than, on the surface, The Big Purple, a site specific piece, could ever do.
