Rewind - Power Art Competition.

Re-wind was envisioned as a permanent installation that makes visible the patterns of the wind both during the day and at night. An array of 16,000 small semi-translucent turbines would wrap the existing power substation seated at the western foot of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge in Dallas, creating a breathing wall of light that pulses with the intensity of the wind at night, and dances with the suns reflections during the day.

As a part of the National Endowment for the Arts Mayors’ Institute on Community Design 25th Initiative (MICD 25), the City of Dallas, CityDesign Studio and Oncor have partnered to help re-imagine the external appearance of the power substation seated prominently at the western foot of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, a signature bridge designed by Santiago Calatrava scheduled to open in early 2012.
