Upon invitation to LIAF – Lofoten International Art Festival, Futurefarmers were warned of the ever-present winds that move up and across the archipelago of Lofoten. Futurefarmers Amy Franceschini and Lode Vranken built a small, wearable windmill to encounter these winds for their first visit. This object was developed into the windmill today standing at the end of the road in Årstein. It can be used as a conversation piece and utilized by several people for various purposes, like running a printing press.
Futurefarmers is an international constellation of artists, activists, researchers, farmers and architects who work together to propose alternatives to the social, political and environmental organisation of space.

A tale like a gale
blows through Aarstein each year
in the form of a festival of music.
This year Wind Theater visits. With her tall
form – wind mill, she carries a tale of a struggle,
a tale of three magical objects and a tale still to be told.
Futurefarmers invites you to assemble text, ink up the press
and engage with the wind to print this tale that is waiting
to be told.
