The global environmental crisis has accelerated the development of renewable energy. Greece, a country blessed with wind energy resources, has made significant investment in wind turbine developments through which, the Greek government hopes to stimulate the country's economy. However, while these developments do have many benefits, their environmental costs—although reflected in the environment itself—are generally uncalculated by those not carrying the burden of their reflection.
Linked to the catastrophic wildfires of August 2021, wind farms are planned for North Euboea, an area not considered to be rich in wind energy. The environmental impact of the deforestation required to build the windmill is not limited to the loss of forest life—trees, animals, soils, and homes—but directly affects the local wind and climate by changing land temperatures and humidities that in turn alter wind patterns and ways of life. To further investigate and visualise these relationships, our film works with concepts of surface roughness and metabolic rifts We hope to make this film public and to challenge public perceptions of wind energy infrastructure through artistic visual representations that encourage people to reflect on their environmental impact.The film will be divided into three timelines—past, present and future—to reveal the environmental impact of mankind's excessive pursuit of energy.
