Wind Knitting Factory

‘Wind Knitting Factory’ is a wind powered knitting machine that is attached to the facade of a building. The blades embrace more than a meter in diameter, and the wind that is cached by the mill drives the machine. Like that a long scarf gets knitted along the building downward. When it is windy the machine knits fast and with less wind the machine knits slowly.

From the top of the façade the knitwear drops along the front, until a window has been reached. Trough the window the knitwear gets continues transported inside, where people can see it becoming longer and longer. Occasionally the knitwear gets ‘harvested’ and transformed into scarves. Every scarf gets a label which tells you the time and the date on which the wind made the scarf.

 This mobile wind factory, which operates between the public and the private space, illustrates a production process and visualizes what you can produce with the present urban wind.
