Wind Army:A Homage to H.G. Wells "War of the Worlds"
I suppose growing up I read too many science fiction stories. Sure,
I had my share of Christopher Robin and Superheroes of all disguises
and abilities, but it was the Utopian worlds with light from two suns and
aliens who could read your thoughts that captured my imagination. Do
So it came as no surprise that the first wind farm I saw didn’t make
me think of alternative sources of energy but that the Tripods of War
of the Worlds had come alive and were marching across the landscape.
As I passed these monoliths I would see their alien shapes rotating in
the light, beckoning me to stop and to let my imagination run free - to
begin an exploration and retelling of this classic story.
