How the Wind Blows was a collaborative project involving artist Luce Choules and the Sea Cadets at TS Hazard in Faversham, Kent. During her residency, Luce walked the Saxon Shore Way between Teynham and Whitstable, looking for sites to photograph winds that blow along the creek and estuary. A map publication ‘Tide’ made during the residency, charts her discoveries in the area through photographic field studies made while she walked.
The Sea Cadets contributed to parts of this work by suggesting sites and areas for the artist to investigate. This online project records the movement of a small portable flag in the wind cited temporarily in the Kent landscape. Using numbered pins and a detailed Ordnance Survey map of the local area, points were located along the Saxon Shore Way. From this basic foundation a new experiential map was made through the films – a map containing real places for the cadets to investigate and rediscover their wider environment.
