This weekend’s planned showing of a new project by Studio Roosegaarde focussing on the ‘beauty of green energy’ has been cancelled because the wind is coming from the wrong direction.

The project involves beams of green light dancing across a wind farm in Zeeland but the weather has scuppered this weekend’s planned laser display.

Artist Daan Roosegaarde says has been inspired by the traditional windmills of Kinderdijk.

At the same time, the installation is a tribute to modern ways of harvesting wind energy. ‘There’s a lot of “I want it, but I don’t want to see it”,’ Roosegaarde said in an interview with Wired. ‘I think that’s weird. I think they’re beautiful, to be honest.’

Keep a watch on the studio’s Facebook page for new dates.
