Satire Artist Proposes Wind Farm Vacation

A planned windfarm off Nantucket Island has drawn the ire of residents worried about their views. Now Artist Jay Critchley has an idea to pretty it up. Critchley has “submitted a proposal to the Corps of Engineers for ‘Martucket Eyeland,’ a ‘Las Vegas-style, family-oriented vacation land’ to be built in the ocean on a corner of Cape Wind Associates’ planned Nantucket Sound wind farm. The man-made island would offer the sights of Cape Cod – including the Pilgrim Monument – with terrific views of the turbines.”
