Terschelling, NY and 15 other locations 2009 – 2015
Approximately 400 artists were asked to paint a Wind nomad, a painting that through an ingenious stainless-steel construction, rocked and floated above the endless wetlands like butterflies skimming across the land. Together with the ever-changing tide, these moving paintings gave the endless shoreline vitality and colour. Each day art, water, nature and culture merged into one and tumbled over each other with live music as an accompaniment. Visitors sauntered among the swaying paintings and the endless sea, at times knee deep in water to move through this moving, colourful landscape.
Smaller groups of wind nomads traveled to fifteen other locations between 2009 and 2015 and the entire fleet flew to Governors Island, New York in September 2009 where they were installed as part of the landscape.
