It is WaterWeek!
During the UN 2023 Water Conference, we want to showcase the importance of water for our work at OOZE and feature some of the important water-related projects we were fortunate to realise with our partners over the years.

The Wind Lift is On

15 February 2014

Ooze and Marjetica Potrc have been commissioned to participate to the Folkestone art Trienial with the project " The wind lift". The project is curated by Lewis Biggs and organized by the Creative Foundation.

The Wind Lift project uses one of the Foord viaduct’s nineteen arches as a wind funnel. A wind turbine large enough to fill the entire upper section of the arch produces energy, which is used to power a construction passenger lift. The visitor can go up to see the view only when there is enough energy harvested .The project explores the potential of a local close loop system in an urban environment.

The other artists invited are Andy Goldsworthy, Alex Hartley, Amina Menia, Diane Dever & Jonathan Wright, Emma Hart, Gabriel Lester, Ian Hamilton Finlay, John Harle & Tom Pickard with the Folkestone Futures Choir, Jyll Bradley, muf Architecture/Art, Pablo Bronstein, rootoftwo, Sarah Staton, Something & Son, Strange Cargo, Tim Etchells, Will Kwan and Yoko Ono.

The event runs from 30st of August to 2nd of November 2014
