Lightning vs Kinetic sculpture
« on: August 14, 2014, 12:46:19 AM »
Wellington today.



Background, the Zephyrometer was a kinetic sculpture with a large fibreglass pole that waved around in the wind. Wellington gets plenty.

Before picture here

After.



So when people wonder what a strike can do to a tree? About the same...  :o

It's (was) a big fibreglass sculpture. Kinda cool because it moved around in the wind, of which Wellington has a lot. :D

It was mostly paid for by a local power company.

They ran an advert yesterday that went along the lines of

Meridian renewable energy strategy.
Hydro power - Check
Wind power  - Check
Lightning  - X, Needs more development.
