Beaufort Scale

Single Channel HD Video, 3:00 min.

The Beaufort Scale was devised in 1805 by an Irish-born Royal Navy officer. It measures wind speed, not by numbers, but rather by felt or observed conditions at sea or on land. This piece is a poetic response to the wind, as filmed during a snow storm on Lake Tahoe. The audio includes suggestive readings about the bodily implications of various wind speeds.
