Winds of Change
14-31 October 2021
St George’s Plateau
Winds of Change a working windmill installation that celebrates the past, present and future of St George’s Quarter, its links to industry and the development of the city of Liverpool as a whole. The commission is part of ‘Very Public Art’.
The self-sufficient windmill features moving elements and uses some of the earliest renewable energy technology to produce its own power by harnessing the wind. This then provides electricity for LED illumination of laser cut perforated patterns all around the structure while also powering the modern-day technological devices installed inside.
On display in St George’s Quarter 14-31 October, this stunning installation is accompanied by a series of workshops celebrating the history of the area – keep an eye out for further details coming soon.
Winds of Change was commissioned by St George’s Quarter and designed by Simon Armstrong of Design Laser Play and Laura Pullig with support from DoES Liverpool.
Very Public Art commissions are a celebration of outdoor, public art taking place across Liverpool’s Quarters commissioned by Culture Liverpool and supported by Arts Council England.
