For Resfest, the pioneering digital film festival born during the go-go '90s, the answer rests with ... innovation. Now that digital filmmaking has been embraced by the film establishment, it's no longer the medium but the message that's important. In 1997, when Resfest began, it was the dawn of digital filmmaking.

Ten 10-foot pinwheels with panels decorated by artists such as filmmaker Mike Mills, photographer Terry Richardson and visual artist Chris Johansson will be staked into the grounds around Barnsdall, where the art in this temporal installation will fully reveal itself only when the wind blows.
