The artist documents and materials were digitally processed and made available to the jurors in advance. The interpretation of the theme , originality, outdoor aspects and feasibility were taken into account. Upon immersion in ideas, designs and information, everything was discussed in detail : The session lasted nearly 8 hours. 61 designs , works and ideas were selected.



Included are a turbine tower , word banners , wind- sensitive installations, actions for capturing wind sound , chaos theories , a performance with a water drop, a castle in the air and much more .
