Art of Pylons

New Mills Pylon

Samuri pylon herding cows in New Mills, Derbyshire. A comic allusion that can not pass without comment haha. Something about pylons has always intrigued me, possibly because I have a life long fascination with everything electrical but also there is a curious resonance with something primordial and universal in the environment. The universe of esoteric quantum energy, electricity and atmosphere, electricity weather and cosmic radiation. Pylons, or more specifically, the power lines they carry, do interact directly with this environment of esoteric energies. Solar storms, thunder storms and strange emanations from deep space all impinge on this expansive electrical network and impose measurable effects and changes on it.

Storm Current

Two major power lines or super grid lines crossing Stanlow Flats near to Ellesmere Port. These lines are a familiar site for anyone driving along the M56 toward Liverpool and carry power from Fiddlers Ferry power station into the national grid. Super grid lines are designed to carry very high current at high voltage hence the larger number of conductors.
