Several months ago, we saw some images from one of Ghostpatrols latest projects – the painting of a massive wind turbine out in Hepburn/Dalesford, Victoria.
Now, the video for the project and a whole bunch of new images that haven’t been seen before have been released – and what a project it looks to have been!!
"I’m super proud to have been part of this amazing project. The Hepburn Windfarm is australia’s first community owed co-op windfarm. The pairof turbines power Dalesford and the surrounding area.
I proudly accepted my friend Simon’s challenge to paint ‘Gale’. I assembled my team,
dived into my research and undertook some serious risk assessment, feeling very lucky
to have been trusted to paint such an amazing structure. We pitched our tents under
the giant blades and got down to work. As far as I know, I’m the first artist to ever paint a
mural on a wind turbine (and I can understand why).
The whole process was super humbling. The community of Dalesford and Hepburn
welcomed us and showed us the strength of spirit and passion required to make a
difference in the world and confront the serious issues of energy and our responsibility
to the environment.
