Out of 600 Haikus sent in for the WORT.WIND.BILD competition organized by the Austrian IG Windkraft, eight were selected and installed on wind turbines at the Kreuzstetten wind farm. They form the world’s first haiku wind turbine hiking trail.

“Landscapes are changing. Wind turbines have become ‘landmarks’ in the Weinviertel that can be seen from afar. WORT.WIND.BILD confronts this metamorphosis through works of art that stand in the field of tension between wind power – landscape – culture.” – Herbert Marko
