Reactor has been looking at windsocks.
These brightly coloured conical tubes are designed to indicate wind direction and relative wind speed. The group has visited various examples of them at airports, chemical plants and alongside distant windy highways. Returning from these utilitarian sites, we have installed our own windsock in the playground at Primary, so that we can spend more time watching its behaviour in the hope that one day we will understand what it is saying to us.
Through sustained observation we have noticed that the windsock starts to eat itself, as though a modern-day Ouroboros. Why not watch the windsock here, and imagine this is you, flapping about in the wind.
The windsock was one outcome of the #ReactorDrysdale collaboration as part of the 'Expanded Studio Project' (Primary / Wysing Arts Centre)
