Windsocks at Treacle Market

This summer SHIFT was delighted to host new media and electronic artist Laura Pullig at the Treacle Market in Macclesfield.

As well as her plant synth workshop, Laura brought one of her wind powered illuminating windsocks. It took Laura a lot of experimentation to finalise the electronic circuits, which used a tilt switch and waterproof LED strips and batteries.  The wind lifts the windsocks and triggers the tilt switch lighting the LEDs. 70 of the socks were created for the installation ‘Flock’ that was shows at Lightpool 2016.
