In September 2010, the artists took a road trip from Sweden to France. In this region of the world, wind farms are numerous; these contemporary windmills mark the course of the road, just like a design embroidered in the landscape. The wind turbines are allegories of the current energy crisis and the ones to come. They represent an alternate solution and nevertheless, despite their endless presence, the energy issue remains and seems insolvable. As they rotate in the wind, they maintain the Earth of Men in weightless conditions and prevent it from falling into the void.
