Tim Knowles Windbarbs 2009
—
A series of ten white flags installed on Plymouth Hoe. Each flag carries  simple black meteorological symbols, called windbarbs, which are used  to indicate wind speeds. The flags appear similar, but are constructed of  different fabrics, of different weight so that they fully fly at the wind speeds  equal to or greater than that indicated on the flag.
This artwork is a celebration of the wind, acting as a cross between an art  installation and meteorological device communicating wind speed and  direction. Wind Barbs follows on from a number of works by Tim Knowles,  which utilise, explore and reveal the wind, its behaviour and effect.
