i like simple so after going off at a tangent with windmills in boats which i decided was not in keeping with the idea behind my initial thoughts i have been investigating fishing nets. the idea to attach the windmills to a net so they can spin. i have tried various samples using paper thread, fishing line and finally cotton Perle.
i have taught myself to make fishing net thanks to the power of you tube! i made my own shuttle and done various experiments. fishing line did my eyes in though i love the idea of the transparency of it.

However i have had an epiphany and think that because the use of the Internet and Skype is essentially an 'enclosed' activity i want to collect all the windmills into an enclosed net, so bits of 'noise graffiti' will leak out.
and this is for you Siân!
i came across this here some time ago when i was putting my proposal together.
