Windweb.surf

What happens when nature and the internet are connected through the use of wind? The two are naturally separated, but when they come together an interesting dynamic presents itself. https://windweb.surf is a work in which the wind completely controls an online domain, generating a new dynamic in which nature becomes a part of the web. Each time the wind blows, a Wi-Fi module connects to the internet and starts posting messages—thus, the content of the website is determined by the wind. Currently there are three different modules placed throughout the Netherlands, each posting at their own speed in relation to the wind in that area.
