The Masters of the Reuse – Refunc – came for Lowlands 2009 with this. Some containers and on top 4 (!) discarded windmills. Gigantic!
Refunc: ‘Big-scale installation with use of disapproved windmill wings and containers. We found a place in Holland where not usable windmill wings (for their intended function) were stored and felt that we needed to reuse them. Our idea to create an almost-flying dinosaur-installation in combination with containers hit the Lowlands music festival people on the right spot as they are going more industrial and needed a new landmark. Main problem was for the construction, 160 tons wind forces and no anchors in the ground.’
