THE WIND OF THE WORLD

“The wind of the world” is a collaborative art project of The Mutual Society of Art that aims to show a holistic view of the world through the aesthetic interpretation of the meteorological phenomenon: the wind. The project has involved people from all over the world who have participated as collaborators, recording 59-second videos of different parts of the planet with the wind as the protagonist. The camera had to be still to be able to observe the effect of the wind. A minute of contemplation in our hectic world.

The project started in late February 2015 and grew to nearly two hundred videos from all five continents, from places like Japan, Panama, South Africa, or Antarctica, among videos from more than thirty countries. From them, we selected 143 that made up both the Vimeo playlist and the movie “The wind of the world” in its final version of 2018, the version that was selected in the international call “At a distance # 3.” that was exhibited at “Wedge Projects” in Chicago in May 2019.

The reference of dynamic systems is interesting to us because of its lack of predictability, but also for its interdependent nature, for the intimate connection between the different variables of the system. Thus, the suggestive idea prevails that it is the same air current that, on your journey through the world, and if you are attentive enough and observe, is captured. 59 seconds of wind implies stopping exceptionally in the daily flow, displacing the perception from its daily environment to the aesthetic one through the vision of a phenomenon in conditions of observation that force us to stop our thinking and, by looking at the small details, merge with the flow caused by the wind,the branch that moves, the waving flag …

The videos can be watched as a playlist at:
