Art+Energy Camp, Summer 2015, Pittsburgh
This unique six-week summer (2015) camp in the Homewood neighborhood of
Pittsburgh gave 20 kids an education in energy science, climate science, art, design,
and solar power installation. The final outcome was a built solar artwork—Renaissance
Gate—designed by the campers!
The Land Art Generator provides a platform for artists, architects, landscape architects, and other creatives working with engineers and scientists to bring forward solutions for sustainable energy infrastructures that enhance the city as works of public art.
The LAGI 2nd Edition Field Guide to Renewable Energy Technologies is available for free download!
The future we would like to see is one in which we are surrounded by the most diverse ecosystem of renewable energy technologies and landscapes, each a reflection of local culture and context.
In this future, where you will be surrounded by beautiful renewable energy generators, you will surely need a guidebook in order to know if that thing that you find so beautiful is a semiconductor-based artificial photosynthetic cell, a piezoelectric generator, a triboelectric fabric, or a dye-sensitized solar cell.
What is the future that you would like to see?
Use this guide and design your own renewable energy landscapes!
By the year 2050 we will have transitioned to a world entirely powered by clean energy. What will that look like exactly? What will the visual impact be on our cities and landscapes?
LAGI studies these questions and provides free information graphics and visualizations to help us all better understand the cultural implications of a post carbon world, and to see what is possible.
