"Winds are advertisements of all touch, however much or little we may be able to read them; telling their wanderings ever by their accents alone. "- John Muir.

Though ever fleeting, the wind is a truly powerful force in the landscape. There is something universally moving about the sound and feel of wind rustling in a forest or an open field, the forces of nature rendered visible by the fluid movement of plants. Yet the ubiquitous nature of wind does not forsake its regional specificity. In Quebec, farmers and rural dwellers can attest to the beauty of blue waves of flax flowers trembling in the breeze. Though the garden tradition exists in many permutations, formal tendencies often obscure the ephemeral qualities of the local landscape. 15 KNOTS focuses the senses on the most basic of landscapes, productive fields, and uses the elemental effects of the wind as agent of design. In this setting, 15 KNOTS responds to the regional flax crops of Quebec and uses Wind Walls to etch patterns onto the landscape.

"The winds are the announcements of everything they touch, how little or how much we may be able to read them; counting his wanderings always for his own accents. "- John Muir.
