The project seeks to make the invisible airspace visible. It achieves this through the construction of a vertical object that empowers us to take back control of these spaces reserved for military purposes.During the early years of aviation, laws existed that gave land-owners ownership of the entirety of the vertical space above the footprint of their house, including the air. Recently, wind farms have become a contentious issue. They create no fly-zones in the sky, because of their production of radar white noise, which prevents aircraft flying over them.This project proposes an activism approach the focuses upon the idea of being able to generate and enact your own airspace though the deployment of a personalised wind farm. This creates a form of mechanical imperialism, through enabling control of an individual airspace. In collaboration with Dr Alison J.Williams, Newcastle University.
