The building we were in used to be an Art College and the workshop space is one of the old drawing studios. Carlos helped by Turner Contemporary staff had us covering long poles with coloured materials, constructing the paddles for the windmills and decorating them.
This installation, Moving with the Wind website here forms part of the opening day of Turner Contemporary's Summer of Colour. There will be performances of dance and music on the beach too. I like to think families will go along with tradition windmills in their hands or on top of sandcastles.

My contributions to the windmills had a touch of Mondrian and Matisse going on. I am looking forward to some of the events planned and the next exhibition Mondrian and Colour which starts on the 24th of May.
