WIND 

DRAWING

The breath of life is in the sunlight and the hand of life is in the wind - Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet 

 

Air and wind thread through religion and mythology, influencing civilizations and shaping ecosystems and landscapes. From the wind-sculpted ventifacts of White Desert in Egypt to the circulating air currents on the ocean surface (a vital means of distributing nutrients for ecosystems around the world), aeolian phenomena unquestionably shapes both life and landform.

 

These wind drawings, collected in Canberra, Australia, document the singular manifestations of the wind with improvised rigs, ink and paper.
