This piece was made while at residence at the Mountain Lake Biological Station in the
Appalachian Mountains in Virginia. Sound recordings of the wind taken at a clearing at the
station are translated into a collage in the middle, with West pointing upwards. The
collage also functions as a map of Virginia. Other pathways of the wind (jet
stream, bird migration routes, hurricane paths, and cloud patterns) are then
added to show how they intersect on a larger scale.
