There is a possibility there might be a wind farm in May’s Lick, Mason County. My friend Jim Lally lives on a farm very close to the proposed wind farm, and has a lot of questions about what it would be like to live by a wind farm. We thought our perspective would be interesting because he is a poet/writer, and I am an artist, so I agreed to team up with him and spend a few days exploring wind farms.
I don’t have much experience using my art to explore complicated and controversial ideas, but I believe pushing my boundaries as an artist, so we packed up my artMobile and headed north for Van Wert, Ohio.
We’re spending a few days with their windmills, and talking to the residents who live with them every day. I have learned a lot so far, and expect to learn more as the project develops.
If you are interested in windmills, stay tuned, once we finish our research, our plan is to bring it all together in an artistic and educational way to share with everyone.
