How does a 34-turbine wind farm affect our sense of scale and perspective, and our ability to read distance? This talk, reading and workshop draws on a series of encounters with the infrastructure of North Axholme - its turbines and pylons, drains and canals - and considers how the layering of these networks influences our perception of the landscape.
